Salma Hayek Starrer ‘Beatriz At Dinner’ Bought By Roadside & FilmNation – Sundance


Roadside Attractions and FilmNation Entertainment have acquired North American rights to Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz at Dinner. Mike White wrote it, and Salma Hayek stars with John Lithgow.

An immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, Hayek’s Beatriz has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner. Doug Strutt (Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will be the same. Roadside Attractions and FilmNation also acquired distribution rights for the film in Australia and New Zealand.

WME/CAA/UTA negotiated on behalf of the filmmakers.
