First look at director Peter Hengl's thriller.

Written and directed by Peter Hengl, Family Dinner stars Nina Katlein as a teenage girl who goes to stay with her nutritional guru aunt (Pia Hierzegger) for Easter week in the hopes of losing weight. She soon realises she picked a bad week for a family visit, as her aunt seems to be preparing a unique dinner for the coming Sunday.

Family Dinner premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 10th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Tired of feeling down about her weight, plus-sized 15-year-old Simi (Nina Katlein) heads to her aunt Claudia’s house for Easter weekend. Claudia (Pia Hierzegger) is a popular nutritionist who’s written best-selling health books, so for Simi, spending a few days together could help change her diet and inspire weight loss. What should’ve been a nice holiday weekend with family, however, quickly reveals itself to be anything but. Simi’s cousin, Filipp (Alexander Sladek), is curiously hostile towards her, while Filipp’s stepdad, Stefan (Michael Pink), is curiously the opposite towards Simi, all while Claudia’s dietary guidance verges on becoming overly militant. What’s causing everyone to act so strangely and aggressively? The answers are even worse than Simi’s worst nightmares.
