Agathe de La Fontaine,
Mike is romantic and persistent, a social worker at a psychiatric clinic who falls for a new intern. Gabriela is passionate; she's also engaged; although her love for her fiance Patrick seems more fraternal than erotic, she has an overwhelming sense of obligation to marry him. Mike gets dubious counsel from a colleague, Douglas, who's seems to have a new relationship weekly, and from his unhappy brother. She gets advice from her supervisor, whose long-term marriage ended badly. Gabriela can't seem to say no to Mike, except when he asks her to end her engagement. She heads home to Mexico to introduce Patrick to her family. What's Mike to do? Will anything change her mind? Written by
I have been a fan of Jaime Gomez and his work on Nash Bridges for several years, and he absolutely SHINES in this story. Seidy Lopez is beautiful and sensual, Troy Windbush is fantastic as the confused therapist, Lupe Ontoveris <spelling?> is delightful as the grandmother who just wants to "feed" someone (I know so many women like her!). The people are so real, you can't help getting into their feelings. I saw it in San Francisco, and at the end the audience clapped & cheered. Predictable story? Maybe but so what?... what's wrong with giving us what we like to see, what leaves us feeling good? It was funny and heartwarming. Thank you, Vincent Miller, and we will look forward to your next project. Hope you can use Jaime on that one!
