This big-screen adaptation of Herman Koch’s Dutch novel was originally scheduled to be Cate Blanchett’s directorial debut. Instead, the job went to screenwriter Owen Moverman, and we’re left to wonder what if. A pair of privileged cousins film the murder of a homeless woman whom they decide to torch pretty much because they can. The video goes viral, but the crime remains unsolved until the father of one boy (Richard Gere), a gubernatorial candidate who can no longer stomach the guilt, decides to turn them in. Thus the titular sup, a blue plate feast of blueblood performers. Gathered ‘round the table and hoping to talk some sense into Gere are his psycho brother (Steve Coogan), conniving sister-in-law (Laura Linney, turning on a dime), and trophy wife (Rebecca Hall). Coogan’s performance is a rapidly unraveling strand of pay-attention-to-me noises that make the viewer regret his decision to stray from comedy. Potential game-changing touch: this time, it’s the politician and not his middle-class brother who is in favor of exposing the truth. (2017) — Scott Marks
