KING GEORGES

Expected to Attend: Director Erika Frankel, Subjects Georges Perrier, Genevieve Perrier, and Nicholas Elmi

After more than four decades, America’s finest French restaurant, Philadelphia’s Le Bec Fin, is struggling to keep up with changing tastes. Its tempestuous chef/owner Georges Perrier remains ambivalent: should he sell the restaurant and finally retire, or partner with his talented protégé, Nicholas Elmi (an eventual Top Chef winner), in an attempt to reinvigorate its faded glory King Georges offers an intimate portrait of a passionate culinary artist facing the inevitability of change.
