MR. CHURCH

Drama, Female Screenwriter(s)
A dying mother finds that she is unable to continue caring for her young daughter Charlotte on her own, and so retains the services of one Henry Joseph Church to look after the girl. Mr. Church is an expert chef and immediately takes a shine to his precocious new ward. What began as a temporary arrangement blooms into a lifelong friendship between the talented chef and the maturing young woman. As time passes, Charlotte's curiosity about her mysterious friend will push the limits of their bond.

As directed by the Oscar-nominated Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), Mr. Church is a tender coming-of-age family drama about the families we have and those we make. Eddie Murphy delivers a nuanced dramatic performance as the titular character, and co-stars Britt Robertson, Xavier Samuel, Natascha McElhone and Lucy Fry round out the pitch perfect cast.
