The Last Supper is a dark and fiercely witty comedy set in a small Iowa town, the story follows a group of liberal grad students and their well meaning descent into murder.
Would you play God if you could? It’s 1921. You’re in a bar. In Vienna, Austria. You’re sitting across from a young man, his name is Adolph Hitler. He hasn’t done anything inherently evil yet. But he will. You know he will. He might even start a world war, one day. So… Do you kill him? Do you kill him because you know you can save all those millions of innocent people? Do you kill him because deep in your soul-you know you’re doing the right thing? It’s a question that has been posed by many, but what would happen if you and a group of friends actually decided to take a conviction so far the lines of right and wrong get blurred? Would you play God if you could?
