About “The White Lotus”:
An illustrious group of very different hotel guests want to enjoy a relaxing week’s vacation in a paradisiacal luxury resort in Hawaii. But with every day that goes by, the idyll darkens. The employees of the Hotel White Lotus include the demanding resort manager Armond (Murray Bartlett), who gets off track after a traumatic experience, and the down-to-earth spa manager Belinda (Natasha Rothwell), who is taken on an emotional roller coaster ride by a needy guest will.
The vacationers include the Mossbacher family – Nicole (Connie Britton), a successful type alpha business woman who can’t help but treat her family like disobedient employees, while husband Mark (Steve Zahn) struggles with an embarrassing health crisis and inferiority complex . Teenage son Quinn (Fred Hechinger) is a socially awkward gamer experiencing the wonders of nature for the first time; Daughter Olivia (Sydney Sweeney) has her friend Paula (Brittany O’Grady) in tow. The two sharp-tongued college students view the lifestyle of all vacationers around them with a sardonic eye. The handsome, confident Shane Patton (Jake Lacy) and the equally pretty Rachel (Alexandra Daddario) are newly married and want to enjoy their honeymoon. But her wedding suite was given to other guests and to top it all off, Shane’s pushy mother Kitty (Molly Shannon) shows up. Finally, there is Tanya McQuoid (Jennifer Coolidge), a wealthy, unstable woman recovering from her mother’s death, traveling alone to the hotel, and desperately in need of much more than just a massage.
