BEATRIZ AY DINNER – review
"Destroy life is easy, but maintain it…"
The film Beatriz at Dinner is a magic trip. What the director Miguel Arteta makes is a one way trip into place where you realize life itself. Arteta previous works are not as ambitious as Beatriz at Dinner is. Starting from what is serve for dinner you will end very satisfied.
Beatriz is a lonely woman that loves life not matter what form. Beatriz is a message therapist based on Los Angeles. She loves her work and loves to heal people.
Beatriz works in a hospital but also has clients outside her office. This time, Beatriz goes to the house of a deal client. The client is hosting a dinner party where Beatriz will take part. However, a guest is all the opposite of what Beatriz is and believes. The dinner will make Beatriz’s feelings go wild.

The movie is a plane and simple meal. However, the work delivered from the cast is as hilarious as breathe-taking. Salma Hayer plays the main character Beatriz. Biggest moment in the film: Salma Hayer can sing! John Lithgow is the “bad” guy. The trans-parents Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker are working together. Also, two actors part of American Horror Story, Connie Britton and Chloë Sevigny. Part of the cast already had work before, and the chemistry is a proving fact.
The dark humor in the film is deliciously serve for all. Duplass and Landecker coming from a comedy (Transparent) that touch all types of comedy make all the ingredients cook to the point where you can enjoy it even do it’s dark comedy and a little soul-taste.

Hayer’s character fits her well, however, I want to see her taking risks.
