- Direction: Andrea Berloff
- Actors: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish
- Rating: 3 / 5
If the plot of this female-driven gangster thriller sounds familiar it’s because Andrea Berloff’s directorial debut bears some similarities to last year’s Widows, which incidentally was never released here after being showcased as the closing film of the Mumbai Film Festival.
Adapted from a comic book series, The Kitchen narrates a generic mafia tale with the singular difference that it’s told from the perspective of the wives of three Manhattan-based Irish mobsters sent to prison in the late-1970s.
