“The Feast” tells the story of an evening when a wealthy family gathers for a lavish dinner at their lavish home in the Welsh mountains. The guests are a local businessman and a neighboring farmer who are negotiating the closing of a deal for a mine in the area. When a mysterious young woman shows up to wait tables for the evening, the family’s beliefs and values are challenged as her quiet but unsettling presence begins to disrupt their lives. Slowly, calculatingly, and with the most terrible consequences.
