The Dinner4 Dec 2017
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?
