Description
Adapted from Herman Koch’s bestselling novel of the same name, Ivano De Matteo’s The Dinner daringly improves on the book’s biting social critique. Two brothers and their wives maintain a weekly tradition of dinning together at an upscale restaurant despite the fact that they don’t see eye to eye. The underlying tensions grow exponentially as a dark secret involving their teenage son and daughter rises to the surface.
