I liked this a Whole Lot
22 June 2017 | by levybobSee all my reviews

I liked this film a whole lot. And yes, perhaps some of the characters are a bit obvious, the story a bit contrived in having combative protagonists attending the same dinner party. I'll give that to those who dislike this film. But Beatriz has something to say, it says it in a dramatic, well-timed, rapidly moving way. The characters played by Selma Hayek and John Lithgow could have been over-the-top, but they're not; a certain humanity peeks through even in Lithgow's villain, an attempt at calming herself is evident in Hayek's manner. . The characters who sit between Hayek's and Lithgow's extremes are easy to identify with; I was embarrassed to see much of my wise-cracking young self in the young real estate developer. Some reviewers have found fault with the film's closing act, calling it too ambiguous, or a choice of ambiguity over resolution. Not I. I found the ending perfect. Easy to understand and believable. Finally - and this is really important - I do love Selma Hayek.
