The Valet

Hulu’s new romantic comedy The Valet is a love letter to the romantic comedy genre as well as to Los Angeles’ diverse communities. The subtle theme of the film is that Love is always at the center of everything. Whether it is romantic love, familial, or love for your friends and community. This highly enjoyable film shines a light on the underrepresented communities in Los Angeles and gives them a moment to be seen as the main characters.

 In “The Valet,” world-famous movie star, Olivia (Samara Weaving) faces a PR disaster when a paparazzi snaps a photo of her with her married lover, Vincent (Max Greenfield). The hard-working valet Antonio (Eugenio Derbez) accidentally appears in the same photo and is enlisted to pose as Olivia’s new boyfriend as a cover-up. This ruse with Olivia thrusts Antonio into the spotlight and unexpected chaos. In this fish-out-of-water romantic comedy, two worlds and cultures collide as both Olivia and Antonio start to see themselves more clearly than ever before. “The Valet,” directed by Richard Wong and written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher, is the English-language remake of the hit French film.

The Valet premieres on Hulu and across Disney streaming services globally on May 20th, 2022.
