The Wrap | 'Beatriz at Dinner' Review

The Wrap

If zeitgeist appeal were everything, “Beatriz at Dinner” would be an instant classic: this satire pits a hard-working immigrant against a table full of irritating rich people and the mega-wealthy real estate mogul to whom they’re all toadying. Somehow, the blistering comedy you would expect never quite manifests, and instead we get a lot of on-the-nose sermonizing and weak-tea social commentary.

The story is too old to be commented.
