A complex protagonist, a compelling story, and heartwarming message about love and redemption.
A richly imaginative movie, if not always the easiest to follow.
Solid and stylish if slightly silly fun.
A remarkably timeless movie, it deals with issues that are still relevant and has two main characters who both embody ace themes, albeit in very different ways.
By portraying characters who are joyful and empowered without sex, the film validates celibacy as a lifestyle and shows that you don’t need sex to be happy.
Much more so than other movies, this is very much a work of art – as finely and beautifully crafted as the titular dinner.
As page-to-screen adaptations go, the films are reasonably decent, but you should still read the books.
Has the same problems as the first movie.
Frequently tragic and depressing but also funny and, ultimately, hopeful.
