3/10
Beatriz at Dinner has a point, if you know what it is, want to leave me your opinion in the comments? The performances are really good, because everything begins and ends with Salma Hayek and Jon Lithgow. These two seem like bitter enemies yet connect so much you’d think they were bitter ex-lovers. Lithgow is as cocky as you can imagine and Hayek is so quiet and reserved. Put these two in the same room and watch the sparks fly. I’m sure there is a humanitarian aspect of the film that is really the heart and soul of it, but Hayek going off on one guy isn’t gonna change the world. The most frustrating thing besides the actual ending and the pretend ending is the fact we never get to find out how they know each other. We were excited to check this film because of the potential, yet we may be the only two people who think of this as a complete bust.
