“The Dinner” takes place in an upscale restaurant where two brothers and their wives are having a difficult conversation. Paul, a teacher on disability leave, has made a hash of his life.
Now, all he cares about is his wife and son. He really dislikes his older brother, Stan, a glad-handing Congressman heading towards election as Governor. They are there to discuss their sons, both teenage boys. The two pranked a homeless woman in a deserted ATM one night after a party, with deadly consequences. Their secret is safe,; no one knows it was them. But how long can that last? What’s a parent to do? How far do you go to protect your children? Oh, and Paul stopped taking his meds.
