Beatriz At Dinner
1hr 23min CAST: Salma Hayek, Chloe Sevigny, John Lithgow, Jay Duplass, Connie Britton DIRECTOR: Miguel Arteta ENDS JULY 20 | CAPTIONED ON WEDNESDAYS
Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.
This might be the best performance Salma Hayek has ever given, her quiet, observant reserve eventually giving way to bewilderment and resolve.Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
What begins as a sharply funny comedy of class conflict turns more political, and even poetic, in this latest film by the creative team of Miguel Arteta and Mike White.Anthony Kaufman, Screen International
