The Dinner

4 Dec 20172 stars

Adaptation of a provocative morality tale that boasts a high-powered cast but loses sight of its premise

Herman Koch's 2009 bestseller The Dinner was a riveting read, a jagged, challenging morality tale exploring the clash between principles and self-interest, cynicism and hope, family and career. How far would you go to protect your privileged offspring?
