In The Menu (directed by Succession‘s Mark Mylod), a young couple (The Queen’s Gambit‘s Anya Taylor-Joy & The Great‘s Nicholas Hoult) travel to a coastal island in the Pacific Northwest to eat at an exclusive restaurant, Hawthorn, where the reclusive, globally celebrated Chef Julian Slowik (Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes) has prepared a lavish tasting menu for select special guests. With wild and increasingly violent events occurring, Slowik’s motivation begins to rattle the diners as it becomes apparent that his elaborate menu is designed to catalyze a shocking finale.

"The complexity, both tonally and visually, is there to tease out the film’s black genre heart, and it’s that heart that makes The Menu a delicious and deeply filling experience that will make you beg for a second helping."
"The Menu is a caviar-black comedy with just a hint of gore and horror; it should connect with a similar audience to equally dark comedic offerings like Armando Ianucci’s The Death Of Stalin."
