What starts off as a normal dinner soon becomes a night filled with skepticism and uneasiness, as true feelings come to the surface in a discussion about life. The male lead questions the female as to what her motives are, realizing that continuing down that road would only lead to a life filled with unhappiness and depression. In denial, the female lead tries to convince the man, and in turn herself, that she’s making the right decision.
It’s a great short, and the first time I’ve watched something from HORAN. In essence The Dinner is simple, but the dialogue has the power to not only make you think of the film’s story, but reflect upon your own as well.
