LOVE, CHARLIE: THE RISE AND FALL OF CHEF CHARLIE TROTTER

LOVE, CHARLIE: THE RISE AND FALL OF CHEF CHARLIE TROTTER

In the 2000s, chef Charlie Trotter was the toast of Chicago, his eponymous restaurant one of the world’s top fine-dining destinations. A gastronomic revolutionary and a culinary bad-boy, Trotter paved the way for the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay, yet his tempestuous, competitive nature alienated many. With never-before-seen archival material and new interviews with those who loved and loathed Trotter—who died from a stroke in 2013 at age 54—this absorbing, unvarnished profile chronicles the passions of a master chef and the consequences of pursuing perfection at all costs.Director's Bio:From true crime docuseries to feature documentaries rooted in history and the arts and culture, Rebecca’s work evokes emotion, and enlightens and empowers audiences.
