The BBC drama Toast starring Helena Bonham Carter, Ken Stott, Freddie Highmore, and Victoria Hamilton is getting a US theatrical release on September 23. Originally aired in the UK last Christmas the film is the story of British food writer Nigel Slater’s childhood, focusing on his journey into adulthood and how family tragedy throws him into the culinary world.
I was actually lucky enough to catch this while back in the UK and thoroughly enjoyed the BBC production that is set to the sounds of Dusty Springfield. It is Highmore that shines in the lead role, but he is backed up nicely by Ken Stott as his strict father and Helena Bonham Carter as the bewitching, curvaceous housekeeper, Mrs Potter. Toast will play in a limited number of theaters across the US from September 23 which I am certain will follow with a DVD release shortly after.
