Day 346

movie: Dinner with Friends
starring: Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette
genre: Drama, Food
year: 2001
format: DVD

plot: Two couples discover the truth about the marriage of one of them over a late night dinner.

This at first glance, seems like a sweet little foodie film, but after about the first ten minutes, you realize the food is more of a backdrop then anything else.

It's also based on a stage play.  Which you feel within seconds of the set up.
Rich in dialogue, the story shows how one couple's lives overlaps with the second couple's.  As the first couple reveal their affairs and their break up, the second couple start to wonder how things will affect them. 

what do i think i learned from this film?
There is a fine line between lust and disgust. Lies no matter how small can destroy people's faith in the world around them.
