Written by on February 8, 2017 


What is the line between family and business? How far would you go to protect your child? These seem to be some of the questions boiling at the surface in the first trailer for the mystery thriller, The Dinner. An adaptation of the international best-selling novel by Herman Koch, the film focuses on the titular event wherein things get messy fast (no, sadly, it’s not a food fight).

Starring Richard GereLaura LinneySteve Coogan, and Rebecca Hall as the four diners, they all must debate the morality of the mysterious situation at hand. Helmed by acclaimed director Oren Moverman (The MessengerRampart), The Dinner looks to weave a tangled web of cover-ups and hard truths. See the trailer below, with a nod to Entertainment Weekly, for the film that also stars Chloë Sevigny and will premiere at Berlinale shortly.

When Stan Lohman (Richard Gere), a popular congressman running for governor, invites his troubled younger brother Paul (Steve Coogan) and his wife Claire (Laura Linney) to join him and his wife Katelyn (Rebecca Hall) for dinner at one of the town’s most fashionable restaurants, the stage is set for a tense night. While Stan and Paul have been estranged since childhood, their 16-year- old sons are friends, and the two of them have committed a horrible crime that has shocked the country. While their sons’ identities have not yet been discovered and may never be, their parents must now decide what action to take. As the night proceeds, beliefs about the true natures of the four people at the table are upended, relationships shatter, and each person reveals just how far they are willing to go to protect those they love.

You’re invited to The Dinner on May 5th.
