I've heard of the movie but not the director. I doubt it's Tyler Perry or Lee Daniels. If 50:50 leaves A & D I'll have to use another lifeline, so let's use ATA first.

No problems here (on the couch).

On stage, I might have had a hard time on this one

For a $7,000 question, I find it hard to believe they'd throw in a red herring like Maya, but I wouldn't be sure. $5,000 or lower, I'd say B: Maya Final answer, but $7,000 I might 50/50 to get rid of Inupiat (I've never heard of them) or maybe ask my +1 (although it seems too early to do so).
