With the full programme set to be announced very soon, it has today been confirmed that the film to open this year’s Sundance Film Festival London will be Beatriz At Dinner.
The film, starring Salma Hayek, will open the festival on Thursday 1st June at Picturehouse Central with the film being introduced by the actress, director Miguel Arteta and screenwriter Mike White. Joining Hayek is an impressive cast consisting of John Lithgow, Jay Duplass, Connie Britton and Chloë Sevigny.
The synopsis for Beatriz At Dinner reads;
Beatriz, an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Southern California. Don Strutt 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 will ever be the same.
Tickets for the Opening Night film and all other films and events will go on sale on Tuesday 2 May via picturehouses.com/sundance.Festival passes are available now (see below) and priority booking for Picturehouse Members and Passholders opens on 25 April.
