PECCADILLO PICTURES PRESENTS MARGARITA

Margarita

To the outside, Gail and Ben have it all two successful careers, a beautiful house, lots of vacations and an amazing nanny for their teenage daughter, Mali (FINN’S GIRL star, Maya Ritter). However behind the facade, bad investments have the family disconnected, resentful and just about broke.

At the centre of this drama is Mali’s young lesbian Mexican nanny, Margarita. Unknown to her employers Margarita has been working for the family illegally for the past six years but despite all this she is passionate, resourceful and devoted to them.

 

But life is not all work for Margarita, the shy law student Jane is clearly in love with her but is hesitant to bring their relationship out from the closet.

 

When Gail and Ben decide that the best way for them to save money is by firing Margarita they set off a chain of events that lead to her deportation. Heart broken, Mali withdraws from her parents, forcing them to take an honest look at themselves.

 

The closing film of the 2013 BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival and from the directors of FINN’S GIRL, comes this warm, funny and loving family drama, looking at issues around race, class and immigration.
