This latest work from Roman Polanski (The Pianist, Chinatown) is a razor sharp, black comedy that focuses on parental differences.
After two boys get into a fight on a playground, the parents of the ‘victim’ invite the parents of the ‘bully’ over to their apartment, in order to work out their children’s issues.
A polite discussion of child rearing soon escalates into verbal warfare, with all four parents revealing their true colours.
Featuring pitch-perfect performances from all four actors (special note must go to Waltz); this is a hilarious deconstruction of middle-class politeness.
