A group of people travel to the Hawthorne restaurant, located in a private island. The place is as sophisticated as it is exclusive—the menu costs about 1200 dollars per capita. As the night unfurls, none of the diners seem to realize the severity of the chef (Ralph Fiennes), the peculiar way of serving the food and the strange behavior of the employees except for Margot Mills (Anya Taylor-Joy), who wasn't on the guest list and was invited by Tyler (Nicholas Hoult), her date. The tension increases with the eccentric dishes. No one has any idea about what will happen. In his jump to the big screen after having directed series the size of Game of Thrones, Mark Mylod relies on his remarkable cast in order to build a portrait of the miseries of the upper class. Is it a satire? Is it a thriller? Is it a horror movie? The Menu is, like a night at the Hawthorne, a unique experience.
