Sometimes I notice that after I’ve seen a movie with Jon Favreau (love him), I take on his very familiar lilt. Last Friday, his new movie, Chef, opened in Chicago. And while I don’t usually get to something on opening day, for this, I went right away. It was so good. It spoke to the theme of love in its many iterations: love between a parent and a child, love between former lovers, friend love, and of course, tremendous food love. Check it out.
But what I find really funny is that I notice after I watch him onscreen, I start to talk like him. Today when I was asking our mischievous five-year-old to not do something, my voice sort of rose up at the end, like his very characteristic way of speaking. Is it just me?! Anyway, go see the movie if you can. He does not disappoint. And in the meantime, here is one phone call from the past I will never forget.
