Logan Hill, veteran New York Times contributor, hosts a conversation with actors Salma Hayek and John Lithgow, along with director Miguel Arteta, about their film “Beatriz at Dinner.”
Hear Academy Award®–nominated actor and producer Salma Hayek, Golden Globe and Tony Award–winning actor, musician and author John Lithgow, and film and television director Miguel Arteta discuss their film “Beatriz at Dinner,” where Hayek stars as Beatriz, an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, who has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Southern California. Doug Strutt, played by Lithgow, is a real estate developer whose cutthroat tactics have made him a self–made, self–satisfied billionaire. When these two polar opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither is ever the same. Hear a provocative discourse centered around Arteta’s timely allegory set in the age of Trump, tackling several pressing issues, including racism, social inequality and immigration.
