My review of The Dinner, for The Tulsa Voice. In limited release, this plays like a great piece of live theatre.

The Dinner is an intensely dramatic chamber piece that “delivers precisely what high-minded cinephiles often beg for: a probing examination of people…that keeps revealing itself in ways that prompt you to rethink your assumptions, feelings, biases, and judgments.” Powerhouse performances by all four leads, and a surprising Steve Coogan showcase.
