Beatriz at Dinner

Beatriz (Salma Hayek, Some Kind of Beautiful; Frida), a self-effacing immigrant from Mexico working as a massage therapist and holistic healer, has spent her adult life caring for the sick while neglecting herself.

When her car breaks down and she is stranded at a client's luxurious Newport Beach home overnight, her well-meaning employer Cathy (Connie Britton, TV’s Nashville; Friday Night Lights) insists she join them for a dinner party that evening.

There, Beatriz is introduced to Doug Strutt (John Lithgow, Miss Sloane; Love is Strange), a ruthless billionaire real-estate developer. She listens uncomfortably while Doug brags about his aggressive business tactics, but when he boasts about shooting a rhino in Africa, she can no longer hold her tongue.

As opposing worldviews collide over the dinner table, Beatriz's pent-up outrage emerges in a way that surprises even herself.
