Indie Shocker Shows White Couple Torturing Illegal Immigrants

“Beneath Us” isn’t subtle, from its trailer down to that provocative title.

The upcoming thriller, from Vital Pictures, features a ripped-from-the-headlines story tied to the immigration debate. An affluent white couple invite a group of illegal immigrants from Mexico onto their property to complete renovations on a guest house.

It’s a scenario that likely plays out each day across America. Only one part of that narrative isn’t so common.

“They chased the American dream … now, they’ll have to survive their own nightmare…” the trailer warns.

“We build your houses for you, and you bury us in them,” a worker complains. Meanwhile the couple is straight out of Central Casting: smarmy, smug and spraying the workers with water like they were disobedient pets.

Max Pachman makes his directorial debut in a film that employed a heavily Latino crew to bring the story to the public.

Vital Pictures/NME is a partnership between industry veterans Luis Guerrero and Chris Lemos and the endeavor’s first film has strong LatinX representation both behind the camera and in front of it. The cast is led by James Tupper (Big Little Lies), Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Rigo Sanchez (Animal Kingdom), Roberto ‘Sanz’ Sanchez (2 Fast 2 Furious), Thomas Chavira (Shameless), and Josue Aguirre (Veronica Mars).

“Beneath Us” hasn’t generated a crush of media attention yet, but the liberal pop culture site ScreenRant.com offered up the most positive spin on the film’s messaging.

Beneath Us aspires to start conversations amongst all cultural and racial groups by bridging the divide and making these types of problems more accessible by putting it front and center.

Other outlets are dubbing the movie “socially conscious” due to the subject matter.

“Beneath Us” marks the latest Hollywood effort to impact the immigration debate from the hard Left. We’ve already seen the progressive reboot of “Party of Five,” a show which hammers ICE agents and suggests an open borders policy is the only humane path.

The show’s creative team claim its content is apolitical, and President Donald Trump’s name isn’t part of the narrative. The show’s positioning on securing the border isn’t hard to suss out, though.

Open borders-style programming also can be seen on HBO and Netflix via recent documentaries.

  1. Maybe for their next film they can produce a film on the life of Juan Corona, you know the Latino that murdered more than a few illegals. Or how about a documentary on the Mexican Drug Cartels, they treat Hispanics so well. How about MS-13 after that?

    1. Or since they’re so interested defeating “rape culture”, how about a movie about the Coyotes who take women and girls over the border, sexually assault them as payment, and leave their panties in “rape trees” as trophies of their conquests? You’d think this is something feminists would have a problem with.

  2. Sad thing is many people believe this kind of crap. They actually see us as the enemy in their made up imaginary land of victimhood.

  3. If you don’t care for white people the US is the wrong place to come. 70% of the US is caucasian. Try Liberia. I hear they need migrants.

  4. “Beneath Us” hits select theaters March 6.

    “Beneath Us” exits select theaters March 9.

    Even American Latinos know they have better things to do than sit through this crap.

  5. oh lawd, manufacturing bulls**t like this is so exhausting…i’ll take a pass on watching this, and predict it will tank after release…

    but this is what you get when the supply doesn’t meet the demand…

    1. A new, all-purpose designation to reduce all brown peoples to a homogeneous group, regardless of their ethnic or cultural heritage. It’s essentially an attempt to categorize them as identical to each other, sort of like referring to Asians and white people. That’s how the Left sees them. Japanese? Chinese? Vietnamese? They’re all alike, right? Irish? Italian? Norwegian? Totally interchangeable. So, LatinX does that job. It also eliminates the need for any pesky gender recognition.

      It’s not really going over very well with those communities, as they are proud of their specific heritages, but it’s the preferred shorthand for the woke to reduce individuals to cookie-cutter status.

  6. This cartoonish reductionism isn’t surprising since no one can make distinctions anymore and there is a preferred narrative to prop up. It seems that there is no project too woke to waste money on in Hollywood nowadays.

    Why would anyone want to come to such an irredeemably racist country?

    Now if they were talking about a wealthy married couple in Saudi Arabia and their Filipino house staff, there might be a story in it.
