Stephen Graham’s critically acclaimed, Bafta nominated film Boiling Point follows a chef as he navigates a series of high-pressure situations at his restaurant on the busiest night of the year. Shot in a single take at an actual restaurant in Dalston, London,  the film show’s a darker side to fine dining while exploring themes of stress and addiction. 

Boiling Point is the collective brainwork of Line of Duty actor Stephen Graham, director and writer Philip Barantini and writer James Cummings. The trio first worked together on the 2001 series Band of Brothers and in 2019 they trialed a short, 20-minute version of the film to see if the concept could work. It was a roaring success and was nominated for several awards then two years later, the full-length film came to fruition.
