When and Where Did The Valet Film?
Production for The Valet began in May 2022, and filming seemed to conclude the following month. Many people in Atlanta, Georgia, were spooked for the Beverly Hills setting.
What Is The Valets Story?
The Valet is a romantic comedy, but it prefers romance rather than comedy, as can be seen from the trailer and the marketing.
Olivia is a well-known Hollywood star and Amelia Earhart is on the verge of release one night while she is discreetly meeting her lover, who happens to be married. She knocks over a man on a bike and is caught on camera by a paparazzo just at that moment. The next days headlines reveal the two men with Olivia in the picture, and her agent goes to desperate actions.
The couple discovers that Antonio is just a simple valet who works at an upscale Beverly Hills restaurant. Antonio is then hired by Olivia to hide her boyfriend/date and appear in front of the media to cover up her affair with the married man. The result is a series of ruses that makes both of them difficult to keep up.
The plot of The Valet is a narrative about Antonio, how he copes with his new life and lifestyle, but also about Olivia, and how she discovers more about herself.
The Valet appears to be a simple and funny tale about two individuals who learn more about themselves when confronted with a dangerous situation.
