About the Film
Flynn McGarry began a supper club in his living room as a preteen, was the subject of a New York Times Magazine cover story at 16, and trained in some of the top restaurants in the world before opening his own spot in New York City earlier this year. Cameron Yates combines intimate vérité with footage shot over the years by Flynn’s mother and de facto manager, Meg, to compose an artful coming-of-age portrait of a culinary wunderkind reckoning with celebrity as he develops his delectable craft.
Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
