In The Dinner two couples go out to dinner in a restaurant. They talk about ordinary things: work, the latest movies, holiday plans etc. They avoid discussing the one thing of true importance: their children. Because their children have done something horrible, which could potentially destroy their future.
The story follows two couples who go out for dinner at a fancy restaurant. They talk about everyday casualties, but avoid the subject were they actually should be talking about: their 15-year old sons and a horrible crime that would shock the nation. The Dinner puts everyone on edge, asking how far would you go to protect your child and your future?
Adapting the bestselling novel by Dutch-writer Herman Koch, inspired by a shocking real-life crime, Menno Meyjes (screenwriter of The Color Purple and Lionheart) directs this excoriating assessment of Europe’s contemporary social ills.
