'Beatriz at Dinner' is food for thought

• 3½ stars out of four •

The timely comedy “Beatriz at Dinner” questions the truth of the American dream. Working from a screenplay by frequent collaborator Mike White, director Miguel Arteta (“Youth in Revolt”) deftly balances subtle humor with sharp observations about class, wealth and power. And he has the confidence to go with an ending that’s as memorable as it is enigmatic.

In her best role since “Frida” (2002), Hayek is terrific as a woman who finds her values under attack. It’s a performance equally informed by reflection and rage. And Lithgow transcends caricature to portray a borderline sociopath who simply can’t understand why anyone would object to his brutally heartless agenda.

“Beatriz at Dinner” is a meal of a film, with plenty to chew on.

'My Cousin Rachel' is a relatively creepy look at British cultural history

★★★½ out of 4 stars

Handsomely mounted, beautifully cast and tautly directed, “My Cousin Rachel” gives us a piece of British cultural history in the form of a chilling period mystery. Heavy with the weight of cruelty that we feel certain is coming, it shows that jealousy, suspicion and heedless desire may put even the most beautiful people in jeopardy, and that simple naiveté might have menacing effects. Based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier (whose bookshelf has given us such haunting films as “The Birds,” “Rebecca” and “Don’t Look Now”), it plays like a fever dream wrapped inside a sharp thriller. Set in rural England in the 1830s, it is about a love affair that slowly, surely builds to tragedy. Michell applies a Hitchcockian level of anxiety. We are kept as confused as Philip while he tries to piece together the puzzle. The splendid production design draws us into a world where fine dress could conceal dangerous thoughts, baleful intentions were expressed in the most genteel way and unrequited love could carry the darkest consequences. - - Colin Covert / Star Tribune
