    Watch The Dinner (I nostri ragazzi), the 2014 Italian film based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Herman Koch.  The Dinner tells the story of an ordinary meal among family that turns into a taut morality play as the limits of polite society are tested, and two brothers discover just how little they know about one another. 


    The movie is available on both HOOPLA and Kanopy; DVDs of The Dinner are available to be placed on hold through the Library as well.
