The kitchen has always been known as the room or area where food is prepared and cooked. It’s no secret that amongst the hustlers in the world of narcotics the kitchen is also recognized as a place inside of the “trap” (drug house), where fraternizing and hustling such as gambling, drug manufacturing, etc. takes place. In a new movie titled “The Kitchen”, movie directors give us the flip side of the game.
What happens to the significant others of the men that hustle to feed their families out of those kitchens are incarcerated?
Directors and producers give us an inside look at what the lives of three mobsters wives looked like after they were incarcerated and what those women had to endure to make ends meet while their husband’s are paying their debt back to society. In 1978, the Hell’s Kitchen (New York) housewives were put to the test when they have to bang and slang like the big boys of the Irish Mafia to prove that women really run it…the rackets and the fate of their competition.
The film from New Line Cinema and BRON Creative, is written by Andrea Berloff, who was nominated for an Oscar for the original screenplay for “Straight Outta Compton.” “The Kitchen” stars Tiffany Haddish (“Girls Trip”), Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) and Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”). Berloff’s screenplay is based on the Vertigo comic book series created by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle for DC. It’s set to be released on this Friday, August 9th, 2019.
