Provocative Film Explores Contemporary Controversies

Roadside Attraction’s new film Beatriz at Dinner, starring Salma Hayek, John Lithgow, Connie Britton, Jay Duplass, Amy Landecker, Chloë Sevigny, David Warshofsky and John Early, opened in theaters nationwide on June 23.

        Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.

        This film explores a variety of worldly, as well as spiritual, themes such as integrity, compassion, materialism and greed. Beatriz has dedicated her life to a variety of healing practices, yet finds herself immensely challenged when confronted with the antithesis of all she holds dear. As a spiritual seeker, she strives to express the best of herself, yet feels herself brought to the brink of madness by the realities of modern life.
