A look at how far parents will go to protect their children. Feature film based on a novel by Herman Koch.

” THE DINNER is a portrait of the hidden muck, and even the quivers of insanity, that can run through the most “normal” of families. There’s certainly a touch of gimmickry in the film’s design — the fact that it’s a glorified four-hander,a riveting quartet, in which these embattled adults play the truth game with their own souls. Yet the director balances the potential for staginess with his flowing cinematic bravura; he keeps surprising you, and he gives the drama a dash of poison elegance.This marks a return to form for a filmmaker who’s an underhanded expert at exposing the darkness in his characters’ hearts and getting the audience to feel that, yes, it’s their darkness too.” VARIETY.
