The Dinner

M Drama

How far would you go to protect your children?

Based on the international best-seller by Herman Koch, THE DINNER invites us to a chic, exclusive restaurant with two seemingly successful couples - Paul and Claire Lohman (Steve Coogan and Laura Linney) and Paul’s politician brother Stan and his wife Katelyn (Richard Gere and Rebecca Hall).  As the evening and each course progresses, their cracks as individuals begin to show and a dark secret about their children emerges.  Now they must make the most difficult decision of their lives: do they do what’s right and expose their children to justice or do they keep their guilty secret?

THE DINNER is a riveting look at the savage reality hidden beneath the surface of these four middle class lives.
