A most see film about the struggles of a Cuban family
As a Cuban Americans living in the USA since 1960, due to Castro's revolutions in Cuba, we are very proud of this movie and Andy Garcia's work and effort. We highly recommend this film; because for the first time that there is finally a movie that depicts the reality of Castro's revolution. A most see film about the catastrophic effects of Castro's Revolution in the Cuban family. Plus the fact that the cast, music, and directing are superb !!.Beautiful settings and photography. Andy deserves a sound track Oscar nomination for the well perform and coordinated music that clearly represents the rich and influential music of the period. Thank you to, Andy, Dustin, Steven, Bill, Enrique, Nestor and everyone that made this film possible.
