Beatriz at Dinner

So this is another film festival movie.   My friend had booked this one and I enjoy the element of surprise in going to a movie I know nothing about, and also I can't be blamed if it is terrible.

This is another evening gathering like last night's movie.   Salma Hayek plays the lead Beatriz, a yoga/goat loving masseuse/healer living a simple life.  When visiting a client she finds herself invited to a dinner.  I won't tell you much more lest I ruin the whole story, but all I can think of is what would I do if forced into a dinner with President Trump and his cronies.  What would run through your mind?

I was a bit disappointed by the ending, it felt wrong for the story.  3/5.

I like watching movies I know little about, too. If I read one or two good recommendations and nothing else, I will take a look. It's always good to find a gem that way.
