(Now available to own on Digital)

I missed this movie when it was in theaters back in August, but have been counting down the days for it to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD.  Now, the wait is finally over, as THE KITCHEN is now available to own on Digital, and will be coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on November 5th.  Thanks to the kind folks at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, I got my hands on a copy of the Blu-ray of this movie yesterday, and couldn't wait for the kids to go to bed, so that my husband and I could watch this movie.  Usually we will wait until Friday or Saturday night to watch a movie, as we are usually tired during the work week.  But, my husband knows just how much I wanted to see this movie, and was up for watching it, and seeing what all the fuss was about. :-)    Come on, who doesn't love the women who star in this movie?  Tiffany Haddish is so funny, as is Melissa McCarthy. And, if you love Handmaid's Tale, then you already know just how great an actress Elisabeth Moss is.

My husband didn't have to ask me who the actors/actresses were who were in the movie, as he knew who they were right off the bat. So, that was a good thing, as he usually will draw assumptions on my "chick flick" movies if he has no idea who is in the movie. If he doesn't know any of the people then he is already in the mindset that the movie will be boring. But, with this movie, he knew the three actresses, and is a huge fan of Elisabeth Moss, so he was ready to see what THE KITCHEN was all about.

If you have been living under a rock, or missed this movie when it played in theaters in August, below is a little back story about the flick, as well as the official movie trailer..

More about this movie:

"Set in 1973 Los Angeles, the film tells the story of Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini), a social worker and widowed single mom struggling to balance the two roles while still coping with the loss of her husband."


Doesn't this look like an amazing movie.  It has just the right amount of drama, comedy, and action that will keep you engaged and glued to the screen from start to finish.  It was like the women's version of The Godfather, but only better! :-)   It was nice to finally see women taking the lead in a mob-style film, and the three actresses who play the lead characters work well together, and make you feel all sorts of emotions, that is hard to do in a film.  I really found myself wondering what I would do if I was Anna Tate Garcia back in the early 70's needing to support her family.  Would I try and step on the toes of the Irish mobsters.

If this movie looks or sounds familiar that is because it is based on the Vertigo comic book miniseries of the same name by Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle.  I have to say I am liking the movie even better than the comic book series. And, I am so glad I know own THE KITCHEN on Blu-ray so that I can watch it time and again, as it really is a great movie, and one you will not get bored of.  And, with the holidays fast approaching this would make for a great stocking stuffer idea for both men and women, or to pic k up and share as an in-house date night movie, as you try and relax with all the craziness of the holidays, once they are in full swing.  

I could go on and on about how great THE KITCHEN is, but, instead, why not buy it now on Digital, or pre-order on DVD or Blu-ray (releases on Nov. 5th), and see for yourself why my husband and I loved this movie, and can't wait to watch it again.
