Storyline

Set entirely on the posh east end of Long Island (where it was filmed), THE MAID'S ROOM centers around Drina, an attractive, intelligent immigrant who takes a job for the season as live-in maid to the Crawfords, a privileged New York family who maintain a splendid home in the Hamptons. The job could be worse, since Mr. and Mrs. Crawford spend most of their time in the city, but their teenage son, Brandon, who is starting Princeton in the fall, is summering at the beach, and Drina must look after him and his spoiled friends. Since the maid's room is next to the garage, Drina can't help noticing when Brandon returns late one night, noisily and obviously drunk. The next day, she sees that Brandon's car is battered and bloodied and, when she reads in the local paper that there has been a fatal hit and run, it's clear who's responsible.

A smart thriller with superb acting.
16 October 2013 | by swallygoSee all my reviews

I saw The Maid's Room at the Hamptons Film Festival and loved it! I had no idea what to expect but was totally moved by this intense psychological thriller. It is an extremely riveting and powerful film that will haunt you long after you leave the theater. The acting was outstanding, featuring Paula Garces as Drina the maid, and a fabulous up and coming talent, Phillip Ettinger. Bill Camp and Annabella Sciorra, as Mr. and Mrs. Crawford, were outstanding as well. Each one of these performances was rich with conflict and emotion that made for a very gripping experience. The movie touches on important social issues but it is the conflict within and between each character that cause such dramatic turmoil and forces you to think more deeply about yourself once the film has ended. I love a movie that challenges me to examine myself and the world around me and this film does just that. I highly recommend seeing it.
