romeo and juliet n da hood

While not in the same range as "Boys in the Hood" or "Menace to Society", a movie that is down to Earth. It featured two things that most movies of this design do not. 1) filmed somewhere other than the standard inner cities that we hear about. It was done in Houston, Texas. 2) The cast of unknowns do a great job of acting. I really dug the the romeo and juliet thing between the vietnamese girl and the young brother. I would rather see movies like this than big budget movies with no plot, overrated directors and booming soundtrack (Belly-anybody?).
