And now for something completely different to end the season.The premise is that an African American man is invited (actually ensnared) to his white girlfriend’s parents estate for dinner but this is definitely not a rerun of the 1967 “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” with Sidney Poitier, Spencer Tracy et al. Rather this is modern version which acts as a metaphor for the state of society in the USA today. Excellent reviews it’s a mixture of suspense, humour and horror.
