All of our problems, we are told, will be solved if we make a point of gathering our family around the dinner table. Terrence Malick's movie baffled many, but it can be read simply as an argument for eating among friendly strangers in a nice restaurant. At Cafe Hon in Hampden, you can order up a meatloaf entree that would have looked right at home on the O'Briens' contentious dining room table and at Cafe Hon you can even put your elbows on the table if you want. But don't. Don't. Do not.
