      Lupe Rodriguez Haas CineMovie.tv The film plays like an educational film shown at school, regardless, the movie is a gripping tale of a family torn apart by careless policies, told in a positive light. Rated: B Dec 31, 2023 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Heartfelt and timely, but overstuffed and clunky. Nov 17, 2023 Full Review Federico Furzan Movie-Blogger.com The very important America’s Family is a solid endeavor by a filmmaker who’s supported by an impressive crew.

      Ana Sofia P Deeply moving story of an American family struggling under the enormous weight of our broken immigration system. Well acted and entertaining but also offering a needed perspective on what needs to change if we want to have a truly humane and fair immigration system. You'll root for everyone in the movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/03/24 Full Review SANDRA B The movie was a very good experience. The reality of the experience was amazing to see how realistic it was. It brings in a compelling way how an immigration detention upends a family’s lives affecting not only the illegal persons but the American citizens. This movie was spectacular and made realize the importance of promoting fairness in the enforcement of immigration laws and in the creation of fair laws due to the human factor. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/23/24 Full Review Joan Marie G What an emotional and instructive ride! If you want to understand both the simplicity (as naturally nomadic beings) and the complexity (as humans who live in lawful systems) of immigration, this is a must-watch. No matter where or why you stand, and what your role in society is, this tells beautiful and inspiring stories of diverse families and heroes all over the world. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Carlos A AMERICA'S FAMILY sheds a light on what an undocumented immigrant family goes through when deportation tears them apart. It displays a raw and heartfelt look at a situation that many people do not understand, and the effects it could have on a family. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Maritza R I really enjoyed the film as it depicts a perfect example of what a true immigrant family looks like. It also demostrates how broken and inhumane our immigration system can be. Unfortunately we don't see many of these type of fims out and I would love to see more. It empowers me to get more involved with these issues within my community. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review Lydia L 'America's Family' portrays the multifaceted challenges faced by numerous undocumented immigrant families in the United States. The depiction of the legal intricacies and the daunting immigration system sheds light on the complexities and inherent prejudices faced by immigrants. Moreover, the compelling narrative of the Diaz family fosters a deep emotional connection. 'America's Family' offered an authentic insight into the immigrant experience in America. I hope it compels others, like it did me, to continue fighting for the rights of immigrants in America. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
