Summary, etc.:
Moving the past into the present, THE REUNION raises questions about harassment, fear, courage, identity and belonging. The film opens with a class reunion where Anna Odell investigates what might have happened if she, a victim of childhood bullying, were to have been invited to her 20th high school reunion. Anna Odell plays herself and actors play the roles of her former class,mates. The dinner party ends in chaos and Odell is eventually evicted by force by her classmates. Act II begins, and we learn that what we just saw was a staging, a "mise en scene", by Odell, who then makes calls to her real class mates inviting them to watch the "mise en scene" with her, and asking for an open discussion about their common past.
