Director Miguel Arteta and writer Mike White — the team behind the acclaimed indie films Chuck & Buck and The Good Girl — reunite for what has been called "the first dramatic comedy that's an explicit — and provocative — allegory of the Age of Trump" (Variety). Beatriz (Salma Hayek), a self-effacing immigrant from Mexico, has spent her adult life caring for the sick while neglecting herself. When her car breaks down and she is stranded at a client's luxurious Newport Beach home overnight, her well-meaning employer (Connie Britton) insists she join them for a dinner party that evening. There, Beatriz is introduced to Doug Strutt (John Lithgow), a ruthless billionaire real-estate developer. She listens uncomfortably while Doug brags about his aggressive business tactics, but when he boasts about shooting a rhino in Africa, she can no longer hold her tongue. As opposing worldviews collide over the dinner table, Beatriz's pent-up outrage emerges in a way that surprises even herself.
