The Maid tells the story of Jack, an emotionally troubled teenager living in the US, who travels to England to spend his upcoming birthday with his estranged dad, hoping to salvage their fragile relationship. Arriving at his dad's house, he is introduced to Maria, the beautiful and mysterious older foreign woman working there. When Maria learns about Jack's troubled life, she becomes emotionally attached to him, as his life story reminds her of her own troubled past. Jack also finds himself being emotionally drawn to Maria, and his desire towards her forces him to take steps towards changing their friendship into a relationship, which will change both of their lives forever.Written by
Jack, the main character, is a horny, whiny, self-centered bastard. The dialog is terrible. He is delusional with his affection to the maid who is much older than he is. You can't buy into this one bit with his whining all the time about his dead mother and his relationship with his father who he refers to by his first name. He is verbally abusive and you just don't have any sympathy for him whatsoever. He is manipulative and I found the other reviews on this astounding when they praise this film.
This id supposedly falls in love with the maid after two days. You just want to b@itch slap the kid after one day. He acts like he is entitled to his own suffering and that nobody else matters. Just avoid this film if you don;t want to get angry at this preposterous melodrama soap opera tripe.
