Beatriz (Salma Hayek) is a Los Angeles massage therapist and holistic healer who drives to the seaside mansion of her client Cathy (Connie Britton). 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 (Jon Lithgow), a ruthless real estate mogul who cares more about money than people. With Chloë Sevigny, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker.
«Dark, hopelessly humane BEATRIZ AT DINNER is the perfect film for the Trump Era… Salma Hayek is remarkable in this deceptively deep dramedy of manners.» (Vanity Fair)
«Salma Hayek offers a performance rich in stillness, tenderness and dignity… Mark Mothersbaugh's pensive, aching score nevertheless represents a major plus point. So does Wyatt Garfield's stunning cinematography, milking the golden hues of the Californian magic hour for all its worth and then sculpting rich, textural nocturnes for the final stretch.» (Hollywood Reporter)
