  • Film Review: 'The Dinner'

    Purporting to examine contemporary social malaise in the Netherlands, "The Dinner" is more entree than main course. Best known as screenwriter of several Steven Spielberg films in the '80s, writer-director Menno Meyjes, adapting the bestselling novel by Herman Koch, fails to elucidate what this tale of two couples keeping mum about their children's criminal activity has to do with the Dutch zeitgeist, leaving a pretentious talkathon where a rigorous critique might have been. Strong thesping, particularly by Jacob Derwig as the more obnoxious of the fathers, isn't enough to help a viewer digest "The Dinner," spelling limited Euro consumption.
