BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

A small-scale but elegantly deft squirmfest that features a luminous performance by Salma Hayek. It also has the distinction of being the first dramatic comedy that’s a provocative allegory of the Age of Trump.

Hayek plays a Los Angeles massage therapist and holistic healer. In bangs and a plain blue shirt, she makes Beatriz a gravely soulful presence. Beatriz drives her puttering old Volkswagen up to the seaside mansion of one of her clients, Cathy (Connie Britton). Beatriz is the help, but she’s also a “friend of the family,” so when the VW breaks down, Cathy invites her to stay for dinner. Even though it’s a business dinner. With a lot riding on it. In which Cathy and her husband will be hosting the legendary real-estate mogul Doug Strutt (John Lithgow).

Beatriz, who’s got his number, is his opposite spirit: the immigrant who wants vengeance. It’s a situation wired for a showdown, and the movie is like a comic fuse that sizzles until it detonates.  --Variety
