J Lo has it Maid in romance flick

Maid In Manhattan stars Jennifer Lopez as Marisa Ventura, a New York maid working in a luxurious hotel.

Maid In Manhattan stars Jennifer Lopez as Marisa Ventura, a New York maid working in a luxurious hotel.

She dreams of having a better life, but doesn’t think she’s good enough, so she doesn’t bother even trying.

One of her work colleagues puts in an application for her to join the management programme in the hotel and she quickly becomes one of the favourites for the post.

But she has a secret to hide.

One day she tries on an expensive outfit belonging to a hotel guest and catches the eye of Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes), an up and coming politician who falls for Marisa, as well as her son Ty (Tyler Posey).

He doesn’t realise she’s a maid in the hotel, and she’s so desperate to change her life, even for a little while, she keeps her secret to herself.

If you are the kind of person who never tires of Cinderella-type tales then you’ll probably have a ball with this one.
