Live-In Maid

An Argentinean film starring Norma Aleandro (The Official Story).  The film follows a beautiful, grand middle aged woman whose recent divorce has left her in a precarious financial position.  While she tries desperately to keep up appearances by pawning one luxury possession after another, finally she is forced to do the unthinkable: discharge her live-in maid of 30 years.  Filled with humor and pitch perfect acting, this story of two women who need each other more than either could ever imagine is a real gem.
