Critic Reviews for Spinning Plates
Plays to sentiment in its second half but you can't help but admire the tenacity of these people, who have been tested repeatedly in almost Biblical fashion, yet come out swinging.
Though these stories have little to do with each other, all are gripping, and you watch the last third of "Spinning Plates" rapt.
While the dramatic conflicts in the film are set up in a rather rote manner (meet the personalities, fret over their setbacks, sigh at the resolution), the human stories here are undeniably moving.
The tales are worthwhile, but it's challenging to find a common thread among them that goes beyond vague generalities.
Audience Reviews for Spinning Plates
Documentary of 3 unrelated (and hard to juxtapose) restaurant owners and the lives of their kitchen... and families. Interesting to watch and "root" for the families / restaurants.
Spinning Plates is a moving documentary about the human element and personality infused in the preparation and service of food. It delves into food as a way of life, a way of expression, and as a community builder. It's genuine, personal and a great watch for foodies.
4.2 Good movie, builds the characters behind the three restaurants and initial assumptions are challenged.
