The Dinner Trailer

The Orchard has revealed the first official trailer for an indie drama titled The Dinner, which is premiering at the Berlin Film Festival starting this week. The Dinner is the latest film from director Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Rampart, Time Out of Mind), adapted from the novel by Herman Koch. The film is about two couples that meet at a restaurant for dinner, discussing a situation involving their children. It's a look at how far parents will go to protect their children. The two couples are: Richard Gere & Rebecca Hall and Steve Coogan & Laura Linney. Also featuring Chloƫ Sevigny, Charlie Plummer, Adepero Oduye and Joel Bissonnette. There is obviously more going on here than just a dinner, I'm curious to see this.

Here's the first official trailer for Oren Moverman's The Dinner, originally from EW (on YouTube):

The screenplay is also written by Oren Moverman, adapting from the novel by Herman Koch, first published in 2009. The film is premiering at the Berlin Film Festival in-competition this month.

    Just saw the French (or was it Italian?) version of this movie on Netflix. Not quite prepared to believe one of the character's actions at the end.

      Now I need to know what those actions were. I have no problems with all this 'spoiler' stuff and would like to know, but I fear the troops here might go nuts if you respond and let me know. Up to
    Looks quite good despite the trailer.

    Pretty good actors in it. Films with Richard Gere lately can be strange, but also watchable. This one looks like having the same potential ...
