“The Dinner” premiered a couple of weeks ago at the Berlin International Film Festival. Now, The Orchard has released a new trailer for Oren Moverman’s dark psychological thriller ahead of its May 5 release.
Based on Herman Koch’s international bestselling novel of the same name, “The Dinner” stars Richard Gere as Stan Lohman, a prominent politician running for governor, who invites his estranged brother Paul (Steve Coogan) and wife Claire (Laura Linney) to join him and his wife Katelyn (Rebecca Hall) for dinner at a hip restaurant. The purpose of the gathering is to discuss a violent crime committed by their teenage sons, which was filmed by a security camera and shown on TV, but, so far, the boys have not been identified. Now the parents must decide how to handle the situation.
The film was written and directed by Moverman. The cast also includes Chloë Sevigny (“The Last Days of Disco”), Rebecca Hall (“Christine”), Charlie Plummer (“King Jack”) and Adepero Oduye (“Pariah”).
