Just wait for the grainy color film of the toddler version of the movie's titular chef blithely playing on the floor with his own pots and pans in fated anticipation of his future calling. It's too adorbs for words.
Because we only follow Flynn into his mid teens, we don't get to see how all this turns out, but what we do get is a portrait of a young man at a critical stage in his career, and a glimpse of the drive it takes to realise a childhood dream.
Flynn, who looks like a younger version of the young Christian Slater, is skinny, intense, a bit wary. If you've ever been the parent of a male adolescent - if you've ever been a male adolescent - you'll recognize him.
The proof is-sorry!-in the pudding: Flynn's dishes are elegantly composed and bursting with creativity, and the audience reactions (at least those we're privy to) are typically rapturous. The kid's got something, and that can't be bought.
Chef Flynn is a remarkable story of Flynn McGarry. I don't know that I would want my child to follow in Flynn's footsteps and experience his experiences. But at the end, you can't help but admire the man McGarry becomes.
