Audience Member This is a slow story with a disappointing ending. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie is a good example of the stuggle of anyone coming from another country trying to survive. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought this was a good story... about two very different people who even though have similar heritage are adapting to their own lives in the US... and even how both in their own way fall victim to false dreams... but eventually are able to resolve their inner demons by being honest with themselves and that is where true hope lies. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie was really well done. Great acting and story of the mexican ethnicity. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member The disco/music-video dancing montage was fun, the downward spirals were engaging enough. Happy endings are nice. I especially liked that the apparently disconnected father was actually a with-it and reasonable guy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member English is an important language though it is not the important factor to reach your American dream!!!
