The Hotel as Mise-en-Scène

(p.93) Vignette Four The Hotel as Mise-en-Scène
Housekeeping By Design
David Brody
University of Chicago Press

In this vignette, Brody explores the notion that the hotel can be seen as a space for transformation and suspension of disbelief. He uses the example of the 1971 film Plaza Suite to illustrate this idea and to show how narratives involving hotel service workers are often reduced to plot devices in popular culture’s depiction of these spaces.
