Well Done.
25 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw a screening of this movie and I must say I wasn't expecting very much. So many factors were going against it. One- being that I'm a guy who hates "chick flix" and two - I had heard of none of the actors, aside from SNL alum Nora Dunn. And three – did I mention that I'm a guy? At the risk of having my manhood challenged I must say that I loved this movie! What a pleasant surprise! Now that I'm a college grad ready for the real world, maybe I'm getting more sensitive. I don't recall the last time I had seen such an engaging story with such endearing characters. I loved this movie! Angie Cepeda, who plays Sofia, a Colombian trying to make it in America, is not only easy on the eyes, but has a natural acting ability that made me care about her within' two minutes. Ken Marino, who plays her love interest, was terrific. Both these actors are great finds. The rest of the cast was wonderful as well, especially Nora Dunn, who was cold as ice, brilliantly funny, and very human when I least expected it. The story blends comedy and drama perfectly in this profound story of love, family, and the powerful connection of mother and child. The movie was thoroughly a joy to watch, and it stayed with me days after I left the festival. Hollywood should take notice of this little film and learn how to generate true emotions from their audience. Max Burkholder, the little precocious foster kid, will steal your heart. Trust me.
