THE DINNER – Trailer

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Here is the trailer from the upcoming film “THE DINNER.” The film is directed by Oren Moverman, starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan, Rebecca Hall and Chloë Sevigny.

The Orchard will release THE DINNER in theaters May 5, 2017

The new film by Academy Award® nominated director Joseph Cedar (FOOTNOTE) is a comic and compassionate drama of a little man whose downfall is rooted in a human frailty all too easy to forgive: a need to matter.

Based on Herman Koch’s international bestselling novel, Oren Moverman’s THE DINNER is a dark psychological thriller about a fierce showdown between two couples during the course of an ornately prepared meal at a fancy restaurant.

When Stan Lohman (Richard Gere), a popular congressman running for governor, invites his troubled younger brother Paul (Steve Coogan) and his wife Claire (Laura Linney) to join him and his wife Katelyn (Rebecca Hall) for dinner at one of the town’s most fashionable restaurants, the stage is set for a tense night. While Stan and Paul have been estranged since childhood, their 16-year- old sons are friends, and the two of them have committed a horrible crime that has shocked the country. While their sons’ identities have not yet been discovered and may never be, their parents must now decide what action to take. As the night proceeds, beliefs about the true natures of the four people at the table are upended, relationships shatter, and each person reveals just how far they are willing to go to protect those they love.

A riveting story filled with many shocking twists and turns, THE DINNER is a chilling parable about the savage reality hidden beneath the surface of middle class lives.

RAMPART Film Trailer

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Here the trailer from Millenium Entertainment upcoming film RAMPART. The crime/drama is directed by Oren Moverman starring Woody Harrelson, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, Ice Cube, Ned Beatty, Cynthia Nixon, Anne Heche, Brie Larson.

RAMPART hits theaters November 23rd – One Week Engagement and January 27th – National Release.

At the heart of Oren Moverman’s Rampart is a riveting parable about what happens to a man who refuses to change, even when change is the only thing that can save him. That man is Dave Brown, played by Woody Harrelson as a cop whose personal life is propelled into a dizzying downward spiral when he comes under suspicion for roughing up a suspect. More than just a police officer who plays things fast and loose, Brown exposes the inner workings of a certain type of personality everyone recognizes around them, a personality very much part of American culture, yet not often examined. He is the kind of man inexorably drawn to authority and power, yet seems destined to abuse it; a man who has dreams of being a great masculine hero, yet is beholden to women; who has undeniable charm, yet whose stubborn refusal to take responsibility for his actions becomes a destructive force against family, community and ultimately himself.

In the late 1990s, Brown is a Vietnam vet and precinct cop working in Los Angeles’ notorious Rampart division. He sees himself as dedicated to “doing the people’s dirty work” . . . even if that means purposely crossing the line between right and wrong to maintain his action-hero state of mind . . . and even if it means obstinately following his own amoral code of “street justice.”

But when Dave gets caught on tape crossing the line, suddenly all the things he has ever done and the man he has become come back to haunt him, as the reality that he cannot change, or won’t change, unravels his fate. Director Oren Moverman (The Messenger), who co-wrote thescreenplay with celebrated crime novelist James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential), probes inside Brown’s raw fear, anguish and paranoia as the noose tightens and the ramifications spread through his relationships with two ex-wives who happen to be sisters, with his disconnected young daughters, with an aging mentor dispensing bad advice, and a parade of police investigators and random women. Stripped of all his former pretense — of the machismo, arrogance, prejudice, sexuality, aggression and misanthropy that he has let define him – Dave Brown is left with nothing but the most unsettling question of all: is there anything left to redeem him as a man?
