The Maid's Room

Synopsis: Set entirely on the posh east end of Long Island (where it was filmed), THE MAID'S ROOM centers around Drina, an attractive, intelligent immigrant who takes a job for the season as live-in maid to the Crawfords, a privileged New York family who maintain a splendid home in the Hamptons. The job could be worse, since Mr. and Mrs. Crawford spend most of their time in the city, but their teenage son, Brandon, who is starting Princeton in the fall, is summering at the beach, and Drina must look after him and his spoiled friends. Since the maid's room is next to the garage, Drina can't help noticing when Brandon returns late one night, noisily and obviously drunk. The next day, she sees that Brandon's car is battered and bloodied and, when she reads in the local paper that there has been a fatal hit and run, it's clear who's responsible. Knowing the Crawford's will do anything to protect their precious son, Drina realizes that, for once, she has some power over her employers. Though the situ

I can only pay you $400 a

week, plus room and board.

That is what I understood.

We're only here on the weekends or

the occasional week in the summer.

The rest of the time,

we live in the city.


Except for Brandon, our son. He's

going to Princeton in September,

so we thought we'd let him stay out

here for the summer and have some fun.

- Congratulations.

- Thank you.

What do you think?

Well, I think she's good. I mean,

she's better than the others.

Her English is certainly better.

- Oh, do you drive?

- I don't have a driver's license.

You're not gonna find everything that

you want. She seems fine with me.

Do you want her or not?

Otherwise we'll go through

the agency again.

Well, you're certainly

very pretty, aren't you?

Thank you.

And you're friends with Carmen?

She's a friend of a friend.

You like her, right? Can

you move in tomorrow?



Hey, Mo!


It's Drina.

The maid.


We don't use this room very much,

unless we're entertaining,

which we don't anymore.

It tends to get very dusty in

here, so every couple of days,

you need to dust.

The pillows all need to

be fluffed up, okay?

And the paintings need to be lightly

dusted at the top of the frames.

Never... nunca... dust

or touch the paintings.

I don't mean to state

the obvious, but...

the last maid we had, if you

weren't very clear with her...

it was a disaster.

I'd like it if you took

a little initiative.

Like the silver.

I can tell you every time

it needs to be polished,

but it would be nice

if you knew when

it needed to be polished

and then did it yourself.

You want me to Polish the silver.


I understand.

This is Brandon's room.

It's not usually this bad.

We just haven't had anybody

to clean for awhile.

What can I say? I try to get him

to clean it. He's a teenager.

If you see it on the

floor, consider it dirty.

Don't throw anything away.

Just stack it. It could be a whole

drama if there's one magazine missing.

He likes two clean

towels every day.

He's a good kid.

He won't bother you.

I love to cook.

This kitchen is my pride and joy.

You can't... I repeat... cannot

leave anything out overnight.

We have ants.

Anything you leave out will be

literally covered the next morning.

You'll see.

No, no, that's the garage.

Your room is in there.

Feel free to decorate it

or whatever you want.

Make yourself at home.

It is very nice.

Why don't you settle in and relax?

I'm gonna start dinner.

I hope this works out.

You seem very sweet.

Thank you.

And it's so nice that you

speak English and so well.

My mother thought

it was important.

She was right.



I need your help in the kitchen.

Yes, Mrs. Crawford.


Hello, Drina.

Everything all right?

Settling in?

Yes, Mr. Crawford. Thank you.

Is the prince coming

down to dinner or what?


It's dinnertime.

Brandon, have you met Drina?

Uh, what's your name? Drano?


Oh, I'm sorry.

It's okay.

Can I get you anything

else, Ms. Crawford?

No, thank you very much.

Uh, actually, Brandon would

like some cream soda.

Yes, miss.




Would you like me to fix

you a plate? There's plenty.

When you are finished, it's fine.

Thank you.

All my numbers are by the

phone in the kitchen.

And this is if you

need anything in town.

Brandon will take you to the store.

Brandon. You'll take Drina to the

store if she needs anything.


Okay, I put a little extra in

there in case of an emergency.

Take care of yourself. Have fun.

I love you.

Love you, too.


I was looking around.

It's so nice here.


Can you get to the beach?

Is there a path?

Yeah, yeah. You just...

you have to drive, though.

I mean, you could walk on the road,

but it's a really long way.

My dad was too cheap to

buy a place on the beach.


I need to get some

things from the store.

Yeah, just make me a list, okay?

Okay. Thank you.

Hey, you like Kitkats?



No one else eats them around here.

I mean, I don't even

know why we have them.

What time is it?

- Dude, did you just get up?

- Yeah.

I knew you were sleeping, prick.

We were supposed to

hang by the pool today.

Hello? Brandon?


Are you there?


Where are you?

Drina, Drina!

Pick up, okay?

Um, I guess you're somewhere

where you can't hear the phone.

Scare you?

In here. Brandon's room.


All right, then. In here.

All right?

He won't be mad?

It's his parents' room.

Come on.

Hey, come on. Just stay.

No, I don't want to.

Don't be like that.

Okay, well, what about tomorrow?

You're drunk.

I don't like you like that.

Stacy's the one who liked you.

I'm sorry.

You're nice.



Uh, someone's at the gate for you.

For me?

Hey. Who was that?


You going to town?



What is this?

You told me to make a list.

Oh, yeah.

Forgot to go to the store.


Yeah, you want to go now?

No, no, no. That's okay.

No, let's go.

Let me get dressed.

No, you... yeah, you look nice.

Come on.

And doing the town

in Easthampton

Or living it up in Connecticut

Movin' around

In Riverhead

Where are you from?


From Bogot?

You've been there?

Uh, no, I just know the capital.


No. I'm not from Bogot.

Why... why did you come here?

Because I make better money.

And I want to go to

university here.
