Dan Invited Hannah Over for Dinner by Patrick T. Lo

A young woman questions her boyfriend's intention behind an 'arbitrary' dinner invitation.

Dan has just invited Hannah over for dinner. They’re romantically involved, but free-spirited Hannah is worried he’s going to propose.

But when she arrives, she’s blindsided by a new revelation — and begins to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around her or what she wants.

Patrick Lo’s nimble drama begins like a comedy, with its heavy-handed British narrator full of satirical self-importance, detailing a list of modern dilemmas.

But through the sensitive performances and patient, observational directing and camerawork, “Dan Invites Hannah Over For Dinner” segues into something with greater emotional resonance, as its young characters grapple with the curveballs that life throws at them.

What remains is a film compelling for its emotional honesty and vulnerability — and a palpable reminder of the perspective we gain when confronted with life’s impermanence.
