Guess What Came Up at Dinner: update on Koch’s The Dinner

dinner still #3During the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last week, Menno Meyjes’ movie adaptation of Herman Koch’s The Dinner was shown. Here is a link to the TIFF site describing the film: http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/festival/2013/dinner

Meyjes was the screenwriter for Spielberg’s The Color Purple and Empire of the Sun as well as Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.

Reviews appear to be mixed – http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/dinner-het-diner-toronto-review-628257, but I want to see it to sort out my feelings about the story.
