Один вечер в ресторане. Две семьи за столом: будущий премьер-министр Стэн Ломан и его брат Пол с женами. Изысканный ужин превращается в поле битвы, а судьба их детей — в разменную монету. Как далеко способен зайти отец, чтобы защитить сына, совершившего преступление?
Certification. Rated R for disturbing violent content, and language throughout.
Rarely does a movie go so far out of its way to not tell a story as The Dinner does. And the film doesn’t have an ending, it just stops. Featuring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan, and Rebecca Hall, the cast is pretty good and delivers some strong performance, yet they’re not able to save this mess.
In a last, very surprising, act of violence, at the cumulation of the movie, Paul threatens to bludgeon Beau to death with a rock. We never find out if Beau has actually been bludgeoned to death by Paul or is merely sitting in the snow needing new underwear. But he does not answer the phone.
AWP Productions was in Gettysburg, Pa., last week to shoot scenes for The Dinner , a movie based on Herman Koch’s novel of the same title. Richard Gere and Steve Coogan, who play brothers in the movie, filmed scenes at Gettysburg National Military Park and a hotel, which offers a view of Gettysburg National Cemetery.
If the movie shows quite early, like 11am, then we could eat after watching. If it was a Sunday, most restaurants would be full after , so either really early lunch or, we choose the 2nd showing. If the first showing is quite late, like 1230pm, then definitely eat first.
