Chef is a new dramatic comedy depicting one determined chef's unfortunate misuse of social media, resulting in him picking up his kitchen utensils and moving to the food truck business. If funny business is more your speed, the Mike Myers-directed Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, the Canadian comedian's first documentary project, is worth a look.

The Animal Project is a touching character study that sheds light on the lives of a small theatre group. Presented in the form of one-on-one interviews, our reviewer noted that these glimpses are "highly personal," asking "big questions regarding regret, ambition, religion, love, family and death."
