Enjoy braised chicken with fennel, olives and herbs; baked rigatoni with eggplant, tomato and ricotta; heirloom tomato and basil salad; sautéed escarole; and olive oil with candied lemon and rosemary compote. Then settle in to watch The Perfect Host, part psychological thriller, part dark comedy, in which John Taylor, a bank robber who needs to get off the streets, ends up in Warwick Wilson's home. Wilson is preparing for a dinner party and things start getting a little strange as the evening unfolds.
