Toronto: Media Luna Offers ‘Dinner’ to Buyers

Psychological drama 'The Dinner' to world preem at fest

Ida Martins’ Media Luna has added four pics to its Toronto fest sales slate, which is headed by Dutch psychological drama “The Dinner.”

Helmed by Menno Meyjes, whose writing credits include films like “The Color Purple,” “Empire of the Sun” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” the pic will have its world premiere at the festival in the Contemporary World Cinema section.

It is based on Herman Koch’s best-seller, inspired by a real-life murder. It centers on a hypocritical left-wing couple, whose teenage son may be hiding a terrible secret.

Another acquisition is Stijn Coninx’s feel-good drama “Marina,” which is based on the childhood memories of the Italian-Belgian singer Rocco Granata, set in a multi-cultural mining community in Belgium.

Also on the slate is Julia von Heinz’s drama “Hanna’s Journey,” a German-Israeli co-production. Pic follows Hanna, who goes to Israel to work with disabled people, and falls in love with Itay, an Israeli social worker.

The final addition is Bettina Blumner’s coming-of-age drama “Broken Glass Park,” which is about Sascha, who has two dreams: to write a novel about her dead mother and take revenge on her stepfather who murdered her.
