The Chambermaid

Eve, a young chambermaid at a luxurious Mexico City hotel, confronts the monotony of long workdays with quiet examinations of forgotten belongings and budding friendships that nourish her newfound and determined dream for a better life.

Slow, steady, and with an exacting eye for detail, Lila Avilés' The Chambermaid is a painfully astute observational drama.
