Shabbat-Dinner-2The year is 1999, and Shabbat Dinner is boring as usual for William Shore. His mother has invited two crazy hippies and their son and is doing her best to show off, his father is berating their oddball guests, and he doesn't have much in common with their son Virgo. That is, until Virgo tells him that he has just come out as gay. In William's room, the boys speak directly to each other about themselves, while just a few feet away the adults discuss trivialities about prep school, marrying Jewish, and nonfat ice cream. It’s not just another Friday night.

The film presents a realistic high school experience in lieu of a heavyhanded message, and in doing so encourages viewers to come to their own conclusions.
