About the Movie

Oscar®-nominated for 2018 Best Documentary Short Subject. What does it take to build a world-class French restaurant? What if the staff is almost entirely men and women just out of prison? What if most have never cooked or served before, and have barely two months to learn their trade? Knife Skills follows the hectic launch of Edwins restaurant in Cleveland. In this improbable setting, with its mouth-watering dishes and its arcane French vocabulary, we discover the challenges of men and women finding their way after their release. We come to know three trainees intimately, as well as the restaurant's founder, who is also dogged by his past. These men and women all have something to prove, and all struggle to launch new lives, an endeavor as pressured and perilous as the ambitious restaurant launch of which they are a part.


Customer Reviews

Knife Skills

Knife Skills is a deeply felt, beautifully rendered look at the opening of an haute cuisine French restaurant in Cleveland Ohio by its founder, Brandon Chrostowski, and a group of men and women who are ex-offenders. As the first students to enroll in the EDWINs Leadership Institute & Restaurant, Chrostowski's students are given an incredible second chance to repair their lives. Inspirational, intimate and heartfelt.


A wonderful documentary on getting a second chance through hard work, passion and hope. Bravo!

Knife Skills

Knife Skills is a moving film which is hopeful and inspiring. It follows formerly incarcerated individuals who are striving for a second chance at a better life through a new career through restaurant training at Edwins in Cleveland and are led by Brandon Chrostowski, a restauranteur who has plowed the way for them. It is a gem of a film, creating empathy and understanding for those that have made mistakes which caused significant impact on their personal and professional lives but have the courage to start over. The film follows the paths of Brandon and the people in the Edwins' program. I highly recommend it.
