Storyline

Wolverhampton,1967: nine year old Nigel Slater loves his mother though she is a hopeless cook, her finest offering being toast whilst he has great culinary aspirations. When she dies of asthma Nigel is left with a distant father but worse is to come when the 'common' Mrs. Joan Potter arrives as the Slaters' cleaner. Nigel fears, rightly, that her aim is to be the next Mrs. Slater and soon he has a new stepmother and is whisked away to the country. Joan is, however, a superb cook but this only makes for rivalry as Nigel, the only boy in his cookery class at secondary school, competes with her to find the way to his father's heart. A weekend job in a pub kitchen introduces Nigel to an older boy, another great cook and gay like himself, who gives him the confidence and inspiration to leave home after his father's death and head for the hotel kitchens of London.

Goofs

In the opening scene, Nigel states that his mother had an aversion to fresh vegetables and that he has "never had a vegetable that didn't come in a tin," but in the picnic scene at the beach the family clearly has fresh butter lettuce leaves and half a tomato in their lunch, and they have vegetables planted in their garden in the back yard.

Rated higher than I feel about Nigel.
1 July 2018 | by jeff-2051See all my reviews

The film is quite good. However, if Nigel is this big of a c*** in real life, I wish him nothing but the most tortuous suffering he deserves. Horrible human.
