Home / Now Showing / GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER
Matt and Christina Drayton (Hollywood power couple Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn) are in for a surprise when daughter Joey (Hepburn’s real-life niece Katharine Houghton, in a Golden Globe-nominated performance) brings home her fiancé, black doctor John Wade Prentice (Sidney Poitier). The aging couple’s supposedly liberal attitudes are challenged during one dramatic and hilarious day and evening, which culminates in the last-minute arrival of Prentice’s parents and an Irish priest for dinner. Nominated for a whopping 10 Oscars, including a win for Best Actress (Hepburn) and Screenplay.
