Beatriz (Selma Hayek), a holistic healer, finds herself attending the dinner party of a wealthy client after her car breaks down.
•A fascinating, well written story that is so relevant in today's world.
•Good direction by Miguel Arteta. Everything from the way he focuses the camera to the music and more only adds to the tension of the situation. Really made me feel like I was there.
•Selma Hayek gives her best performance ever in my opinion. I know it's way too early but I'd love to see her get nominated come award season. I also loved the back and forth between her and John Lithgow (who is also really good in this).
•Sharp, cleaver dialogue.
•The ending. If it wasn't for this it would be a damn near perfect movie. All I'll say is I wish the director had the balls to go with what he appeared to set up but instead we got a cop out. Not that it was bad or anything I just felt a little disappointed.
My Rating: 8.5/10
