Beatriz at Dinner
Comedy • R • 2017 • 1 hr 23 min
Tension builds as a dinner party turns into an examination of classism and xenophobia. Perfect performances from Hayek and Lithgow.
Pretty aimless and leaves a lot open to interpretation. Lots of great performances but it doesn’t add up to much
Wild but boring. Not at all what I expected from the previews. A little disappointed
amazing if you imagine you're at the dinner party rather than watching a movie.
Very different and intriguing. Weird but I’m a good way
Unbelievably depressing with a remarkable performance from Hayek. My only complaint is that it gets a little too glaringly preachy.
Slow and all talk. Was briefly intrigued by premise but it lost me part way and never pulled me back
A lot of social comment. Great acting.
Such an odd movie, but I liked.
This is some solid acting!

IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment.
