An inspiring and touching movie!
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie in linguistics course as a graduate student. I have to say that this film is phenomenal! The movie embodies the struggles and victories that many people in this country face everyday. Growing up, I saw many students get made fun of because they didn't know the English language. I remember being my mom's translator and seeing how she was treated because she didn't know English. This movie hit close to home because there were many situations throughout the movies that I have been a witness to and have even been in. As a bilingual teacher, I see my students go through many of the feelings and situations that are portrayed in the film. Again, this is a great film! recommend it to your friends!
