ANGELIKA’S NOTE

An official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, BEATRIZ AT DINNER is set at a dinner party which brings together two opposites: Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, who has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a spiritual health practitioner in Los Angeles; and Doug Strutt (John Lithgow), a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire real estate developer. Their two worlds collide, and neither will ever be the same. Salma Hayek received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance that was heralded by Vanity Fair as "remarkable," alongside Oscar nominee John Lithgow, Golden Globe nominee Connie Britton, and an all-star ensemble.

SYNOPSIS

Beatriz is a Los Angeles massage therapist and holistic healer who drives to the seaside mansion of her client Cathy. When her old Volkswagen breaks down, she receives a friendly invitation from Cathy to stay for a seemingly innocent business dinner. As the guests arrive and the wine starts to flow, Beatriz finds herself in an escalating war of words with Doug Strutt, a ruthless real estate mogul who cares more about money than people.
