Wonderful adaptation of Esmeralda Santiago's second memoir
3 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sequel to "When I Was Puerto Rican" has been adapted by the authoress herself and made into a charming coming-of-age story of a young Puerto Rican woman who learns to juggle multiple personas as she tries to survive the trials and tribulations of an immigrant in 1960s New York. The actress chosen to play "Negi", Ana Maria Lagasca, is a find and should do great things in her career. Wanda De Jesus, who plays the mother, is a consummate artist worth watching just for her beauty alone.
