Pressure Cooker – Movie Review
The story of survival in one the toughest culinary institutes: Philly.
“Pressure Cooker” is a documentary about a woman who’s name is Stephenson, who teaches kids culinary arts with seriously tough love in underprivileged neighborhoods, located in the inner city of Philadelphia. And you get just as involved in this as in any movie where some kids are trying to make the team, except for here, it’s not making the team, it’s making enough scholarship money to be able to go to college. So for them, its survival of getting out of Philly, or out from under a tyrannical father, or a family who depends too much on a kid. It really is a terrific movie that shouldn’t be missed. You’ll laugh; you’ll cry, and try to figure out how to send the kids a prom dress. Five stars.
