“Salma Hayek gives the performance of her career.”— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
The Provoking and Sharply Funny Film Pitting Oscar® Nominees
Salma Hayek and John Lithgow Against Each Other
Arrives on Digital HD on August 29 and DVD on September 12
SANTA MONICA, CA – Oscar® nominees Salma Hayek (Frida, How to Be a Latin Lover) and John Lithgow (Terms of Endearment, “The Crown”) lead an all-star cast in Beatriz at Dinner, arriving on Digital HD on August 29 and on DVD and On Demand September 12 from Lionsgate. The provocative and sharply hilarious film about characters from vastly different sociopolitical backgrounds colliding over dinner is written by Mike White (School of Rock, TV’s “Enlightened”) and directed by Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt, The Good Girl), and also features Chloe Sevigny (TV’s “Big Love,” Boys Don’t Cry), Connie Britton (TV’s “Friday Night Lights,” “Nashville”), Amy Landecker (TV’s “Transparent,” Doctor Strange), and Jay Duplass (TV’s “Transparent,” “Togetherness”).
Salma Hayek shines in this provocatively funny fish-out-of-water comedy. Beatriz (Hayek), an immigrant from a poor Mexican town, draws upon her innate kindness as a spiritual health practitioner in L.A. Doug Strutt (Lithgow) is a rich and ruthless real-estate developer. When fate brings them together at a dinner party, it leads to a culture clash of wildly comic proportions – and a night that will change both their worlds forever.
The Beatriz at Dinner DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.
