A 2004 comedy-drama film, Live-in Maid, comes to the Bahrain Cinema Club, Juffair at 7pm tonight.
The story follows Dora, who works as a maid for Beba and has worked and lived with her for 35 years.
Beba used to be a well-to-do socialite but successive economic and personal crises have worn her out, reducing her to a purveyor of decadence.
Nowadays she finds herself forced to sell door-to-door beauty products and owes Dora six months’ salary. Dora, tired of listening to Beba’s promises of payment, is now determined to resign. Beba asks her for more time to get the money together; Dora accepts.
During this period Beba tries to undermine the confidence of Dora, discouraging her not to venture into a new phase of life.
At the Sundance Film Festival the film won the Special Jury Prize for World Cinema and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema.
