From the award-winning director of Page One: Inside The New York Times & Eat This New York
Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven is an intimate portrait of Le Cirque founder Sirio Maccioni and his three sons – Mauro, Marco and Mario – to whom he will one day leave his formidable cultural and culinary legacy. Director Andrew Rossi not only gains unbelievable access to the larger-than-life Maccioni family but also catches the family at a dramatic transition: the closing of Le Cirque in 2004, its celebrated re-opening two years later followed by the nerve-wracking wait for New York’s restaurant critics to weigh in on their new incarnation.
Not only is Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven a must-see for anyone who is passionate about food and dining, but it shows us a family embroiled in the age-old struggle between fathers, sons, tradition and change - which, for the family behind Le Cirque, means the fate of one of New York’s most treasured institutions hangs in the balance. Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven is a fascinating portrait of a family business caught in the world’s spotlight.
