THE MENU (2022)

Can we interest you in a dining experience like no other? A remote island, an elite guest list, and a menu to die for. A couple (Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult) travels to a coastal island to sup at chef Ralph Fiennes' exclusive restaurant, where a lavish menu chock-full of shocking surprises awaits them. Twelve customers total, $1,250 a head, a whole lot of mouth feels, and an underlying sense of unease. Welcome to Hawthorn!

The Menu is a thrilling skewering of the upper class, directed by Mark Mylod and starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Ralph Fiennes, John Leguizamo, Judith Light, Hong Chau. After a successful theatrical run and fresh out of theaters, you can feast upon this in the comfort of your own home, thanks to HBO Max. Take a look at the trailer right here as a little amuse-bouche, and stream the main course right now.

I have a perfect menu suggestion for your viewing, but would hate to spoil anything, so maybe you can utilize it on a rewatch.
