Beatriz at Dinner Trailer Release

Sundance Favorite “Beatriz at Dinner” Gets New Trailer

Things are getting a little hairy in the new trailer for Sundance favorite Beatriz at Dinner.

Beatriz (Selma Hayek) is an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico who has channeled her kindness to build a satisfying career as a health practitioner.  But after helping one of her clients she discovers that her car won’t start, leading to an invitation to join the couple and their friends for dinner.

Simple in nature and context this “bite size” trailer offers up a heavy serving of political energy as Beatriz clashes with the evening’s host, cut-throat billionaire Doug Strugg (played by John Lithgow).  And though the overall story arc is sure to strike up some conversation, Hayek’s wit is something I cannot wait to see.

Costarring Connie Britton, Chloë Sevigny, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker and David Warshofsky, the dinner party commences on June 9.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
