“How does a person committed to healing — to being principled, empathetic, and good — handle first contact with the devils who think nothing of destroying our world?”
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

A “comedy” of manners for our times, the tightly constructed and expertly penned (by Mike White) Beatriz at Dinner is a reminder that above all else, the wealthiest and most privileged among us take for granted their purchased privacy. Beatriz (Salma Hayek) is a Mexican-American woman who works as a massage therapist and healer. When circumstances lead to her being invited/trapped for dinner at the Californian McMansion of a client, she accepts with apology and gratitude. Throw in a Trumpy CEO and some culturally-normalized corporate evil, and we’re off – ricocheting between comedy and drama, in the grand tradition of the “we’re-all-trapped-under-this-roof” film tradition, that is.

Dir. Miguel Arteta, 2017, DCP, 83 min.
