The Dinner Storyline

Two sets of wealthy parents meet for dinner to decide what to do about a crime their sons have committed.

As two couples dine at an upscale restaurant, their polite discourse disguises the fact that they are struggling with weighty family issues.

The “Cheese Presentation” scene was filmed at the tail end of the last in a string of overnight sessions. At the NA Premier in TriBeCa, Michael Chernus shared that Director Oren Moverman pulled him aside at 3am and said “go to the kitchen and see… I heard they have some amazing cheeses back there. I need you to find out what they have, Google each one, come back, and do a monologue while looking straight down the barrel of the camera.” Chernus did just that and came back 10 mins later to shoot what turned out to be a memorable (and educational) bit of comedic relief
