Jim and his daughter Veronica, a young high-school music teacher, attempt to unravel their complicated histories and intertwined secrets. After a hoax goes very wrong, Jim’s daughter is falsely convicted of abusing her position of authority over 17-year-old Clive. Veronica is nevertheless convinced she deserves to be punished, but for much earlier crimes. Confused and frustrated by Veronica’s intransigence, Jim’s anguish begins to impinge on his job as a food inspector. He wields great power over small family-owned restaurants; a power he doesn’t hesitate to use.

“Thewlis is a brilliant performer…a perfect lesson in poignant, emotional ebb and flow…Still at the top of his game, Egoyan proves, yet again, that no one does lamentation quite like him. Guest of Honour deserves full cinematic reverence.” (Hammer To Nail)
“plays like a return to the greatest hits of Egoyan’s early career…fascinating and entertaining in the moment–led by David Thewlis in his best performance since Mike Leigh’s Naked.” (The Film Stage)
“well written and beautifully executed…is genuinely enjoyable in its unusual, striking, heartfelt study of human relations. David Thewlis and Laysla De Oliveira are both brilliant in their extremely challenging, carefully nuanced roles” (Far Out)
