Salma Hayek is luminous as a holistic healer who clashes with a rapacious real-estate tycoon (John Lithgow) at a dinner party from hell.
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—but her generosity of spirit is tested when she meets Doug Strutt (John Lithgow), a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. At a dinner party—from hell—hosted by one of Beatriz’s friends (Connie Britton ’89), the worlds of have and have-not collide with disastrous results.
Opening at the Sundance Film Festival, this “dramatic comedy for the Age of Trump” (Variety) features knock-out performances by Hayek and Lithgow, and feeds into the basest appetites of those fuming in this post-election moment. D: Miguel Arteta, US, 2017, 1h 53m
