Anya Taylor-Joy She is one of my favorite actresses nowadays. All of her projects have a seal of guarantee that few Hollywood talents can deliver. Since it appeared in ‘The witch‘, going through ‘Fragmented‘ until you get to ‘The Queen’s Gambit🇧🇷 Anya earned a brilliant resume full of successes.

And in the suspense ‘The menu‘ is no different. Even surrounded by other great talented Hollywood stars, such as Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult, the actress stands out and delivers an extremely tense and disturbing performance. After all, the protagonist has a hard time here.

The script written by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy uses few elements to make a very dense broth. Yes, I will be using several infamous food metaphors throughout this review. And I hope you enjoy them.

The story follows a young couple, Margot (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Tyler (Nicholas Hoult🇧🇷 She is a simple girl, and he is a millionaire who takes her to a desert island in the hope of eating at a restaurant owned by a renowned chef (Fiennes🇧🇷 Everything seems very sophisticated and glamorous at first, but soon Margot begins to notice that behind the kitchen there is a dark secret that is revealed in each of the amazing dishes served. But will they survive until dessert?

Much of the film’s success rests on the director’s wit. Mark Mylodwho commanded the comedy ‘What is your number?‘ and episodes of ‘Succession🇧🇷 It creates a sophisticated look to the suspense, which terrifies even in an extremely glamorous setting.
