Whoa! That part at the end. Where Salma (sexy as HELL even dressed ‘all the way down’) told that chick, “You don’t know me.” That was too real. Like just the other day almost-said-to-coworker real!
Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a spiritual health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire real estate developer. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.
And wowwww… Don’t know Lithgow as a person, but playing THAT much of an azzhole in this movie HAD to take WORK (one hopes, even though there are some mega-anuses out here in ‘real life’ – real talk).
“Beatriz At Dinner” hits the theater screens June 9th. Watch the trailer above.
Still don’t fully understand what microaggressions are?
Here’s a metaphor you won’t forget!
Ohhh! So that’s what you call it when folks who don’t know any better (or who actually do, but wanna be azzholy-on-the-lowly) poke and pester you with patronizing platitudes that are actually coded putdowns… microaggressions!
You know, like if you are actually surprised that a Black guy, or a ‘blogger’ for that matter, actually knew those words I just used, could onomatopoeically employ them thusly, or even want to comment how surprised you are that I know a sesquipedalian word like ‘onomatopoeically’… Yeah, you’d be one of those microaggressors!
