Lefties for supper


AS THE Covid-19 measures tighten, many of us will go stir crazy at being forced to stay indoors for such a long time, so we search for innovative ways of keeping ourselves sane and our children busy. If you get a couple of hours of quiet time, though, I’d like to recommend a film I watched many years ago and which I dug out and watched last week, The Last Supper (1995). I imagine the last thing many conservatives will want to do is switch on a movie in which the protagonists are Leftists but bear with me. This is a brilliant movie.

With a well-rounded cast and a stellar performance by Ron Perlman (rid your minds of the terrible Hellboy movies, the guy can really act), this hidden gem is well worth the watch. I won’t do what many movie reviewers do and give you more than you actually need but the premise surrounds five liberal housemates (Cameron Diaz, Ron Eldard, Annabeth Gish, Jonathan Penner and Courtney B Vance) who take the dinner party to the next level. After a year of having dinner with a guest and political discussion, things go awry when the first guest of the movie (played by Bill Paxton) finds himself in a spot of bother. The housemates hit upon a plan of continuing the dinner plus guest but with the added incentive of repercussions if they can’t change the mind of their guests. What follows is a slew of guests with far reaching views and a garden which becomes fuller by the week.

It’s fun, it’s dark and it’ll have you gripped from start until the credits roll. Trust me when I say, you won’t be disappointed and if you are, well, there are worse things you could be doing.

It can be bought on DVD or rented here.
