      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Though Bratt is great in the title role, the biopic itself is messy and Piñero grows tiresome. Read critic reviews

      Movie Info

      "Piñero" tells the story of the turbulent and creative life of a Latino icon, the poet-playwright-actor Miguel Piñero (Benjamin Bratt), whose urban poetry is recognized as a precursor to rap and hip-hop. Piñero became a hero to many in both the theatrical and Latino worlds. But the resulting notoriety and fame was too much for the Latino bad-boy genius who died a premature death in 1988. His legend lives on.
