Film Review - Dinner in America


“Dinner in America” premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, where it received mostly positive reviews and viewer appreciation. It’s now ready for release over two years after its first screening, and it’s easy to see why a distributor would have some reluctance to launch the feature, which isn’t an audience-pleasing type of movie.
