This film could have been so much more..... - The Dinner review by Gilly

Spoiler Alert

Firstly I must agree with the previous reviewer, no subtitles. This is such a no no in the age of the DDA and really spoiled mine and my husbands viewing as we're both partially deaf and wear aids. We both had to turn it right up and our aids up too and we still missed loads.

The film itself was really well acted, every character was brilliantly portrayed so I can't fault the cast at all, however despite the storyline actually being a very good idea for a movie and being wonderful material the film just felt like a disorganised, distracting mess. There was too much skipping here there and everywhere, there wasn't nearly enough focus on the actual consensus of the storyline and it just felt messy and confusing. The end was amazingly dissapointing and I turned it off feeling like I'd wasted 2 hours of my life. This could have been a fantastic movie, but I'm not surprised to read that even the author hated it.
