Netflix has so many choices for a movie night in, from both new and old releases, to Netflix Originals. Next year (2023), the popular platform will welcome another interesting film to its roster.

The Kitchen will be heading onto Netflix next year, and has a very intriguing concept that many film fans should get excited about. 

The movie is set London, 2044, a year in which the gap between rich and poor is bigger that it has ever been before. Every form of social housing no longer exists, and the working class of London must live in temporary accommodation on the city’s edges. 

The Kitchen is the first, and biggest of its kind; it is London’s final village which takes on residents who do not wish to leave London, the place they call home. 

Here, audiences are introduced to Izi (Kane Robinson), a member of The Kitchen who is trying everything he can to find a way out. We also meet 12-year-old Benji (Jedaiah Bannerman), who has lost his mother and now seeks out a family. 

The Kitchen follows the journey of the unlikely duo as the fight against the system that is stacked against them in more ways than one. 

Academy Award winner, Daniel Kaluuya (Black Panther, Get Out), co-writes this exciting new drama for Netflix with Joe Murtagh (Calm with Horses, Gangs of London) from an idea created by Daniel Kaluuya, Kibwe Tavares and Daniel Emmerson (Calm with Horses). 

“In 2011, I was in my barbershop and there was a guy boasting about smash and grabs -- kids doing million-pound heists in a minute, getting paid £200 to do it. I saw the potential to unlock a unique story door to the inequality, fatherhood, class, joy, resilience, courage, defiance and care of London," says co-writer/producer Daniel Kaluuya, 59% Productions.  

"Now, nearly a decade later, Kibwe Tavares, Daniel Emmerson and I are about to start production, immersing ourselves in a dystopian London that interrogates what 'care' means, at home and as a society and the dangers in our future if we stay indifferent to everything around us.” 

The Kitchen seems like a very promising feature, as it was chosen for the Sundance Screenwriting and Directing Lab in 2016. 

The Kitchen will shoot on location in London, as well as Paris, and is set to release globally in 2023. 

With all the new films that are releasing at the moment, I think The Kitchen looks like a very exciting concept. 

It is getting harder and harder to create an original film nowadays, but this film appears to have a new twist on the very real issue of poverty and the gap between rich and poor. 

With actor Kaluuya from 2017’s Get Out on board, The Kitchen is already set to have a brilliant deep and thought-provoking script that audiences will definitely have some thoughts on. 

I can’t wait to see more on this project, including a trailer, which may come about towards the end of this year (2022).
