2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Alonso Ruizpalacios’ La Cocina

2024 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Alonso Ruizpalacios’ La Cocina

We were a bit surprised that Alonso RuizpalaciosLa Cocina didn’t shore up at a major film fest in 2023, so it’ll be readying to get out of a kitchen for a prime film festival date in ’24. His fourth feature after Güeros (2014), Museum (2018) and A Cop Movie (2021), this has Rooney Mara in the lead and is based on Arnold Wesker’s stage play (set in 1950s London restaurant and revolves around an affair). Will there be carryover docu-esque elements like his last film? It’s a possibility.

Gist: Follows the life in the kitchen of a NYC restaurant where cultures from all over the world blend during the lunchtime rush.

Production Co./Producers: Gerardo Gatica González, Lauren Mann, Ivan Orlic, Ramiro Ruiz.

Prediction: Premieres.

Sales: TBD.
