Lila Avilés’ superbly acted directorial debut is an intimate look at the life of a housekeeper in a lavish Mexico City hotel.
Despite her labor-intensive job, Eve (Gabriela Cartol), the film’s quiet heroine, is eager to pursue her ambitions for a better life.
Even if constantly combating everyday perils, she decides to enroll in an adult education program and forms bonds with other women in her environment, both the working class and those from more affluent circles.
“The Chambermaid” is an introspective journey alongside a woman stronger than her circumstances.
