Maid in Manhattan
Jennifer Lopez, Ralph Fiennes, Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci,
A contemporary interpretation of the classic Hollywood romantic comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, Maid in Manhattan stars the radiant Jennifer Lopez as Marisa Ventura, a hardworking single mom employed by an upscale New York hotel. Zany complications ensue when she is mistaken for a hotel guest by an instantly smitten Republican senatorial candidate, Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes as a most unlikely prince charming). Romance aside, some of the film’s most gratifying scenes depict the sympathetic solidarity of the community of hotel workers, who while remaining all but invisible to their clients, see, support, and celebrate one another.
