Synopsis >

Winner of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Prize in World Cinema for Best Film and the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress and a selection of the 2009 New Directors/New Films series, THE MAID is the story of Raquel (Catalina Saavedra in a bold performance,) who has served as the live-in maid for the Valdes family for 23 years. Neither truly a member of the family nor simply a servant, she inhabits an undefined space somewhere in between. Threatened when the family decides to bring on extra help, she engages in a series of increasingly frantic acts to hold on to her position in this sharp comedic drama about family, class and self-discovery.
