The Dinner is about two couples who meet for dinner in a restaurant to discuss a situation involving their children. Steve Coogan and Richard Gere play two brothers Laura Linney and Rebecca Hall their wifes. Their sons have done something that one of the brothers wants to keep secret, while the other wants to punish them and make them take responsibility for their actions.
