Dinner, The (15)

Crime, Drama, Thriller

Two sets of wealthy parents meet for dinner to decide what to do about a crime their sons have committed.

The critical consensus

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

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 04/12/2017

What promised so much, delivers so little thanks to a script that too often veers from the point. A missed opportunity.

**(*)(*)(*)Jonathan Pile, Empire Online, 08/12/2017

The resolution feels more confused than ambiguous.

The performances are all good but the film is a frustrating misfire.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 08/12/2017

You can see the points Moverman is trying to make, but it’s just a pity that the dialogue isn’t sharper and that the protagonists are so thoroughly unsympathetic.
