made for my dad, 11 January 2009
Author: gabitha13 from United States

This movie is dedicated to my father who passed away in 2006. So i guess you could say that i have a bias opinion but i do not care Everyone should go and see this movie. It has a great message behind it and the cast is awesome! I can tell you this with 100 percent certainty because i have already seen it and i fell instantly in love. It follows a story that we often hear so much about, an illegal immigrant just trying to do an honest job and help take care of his family. The starring role of Hector is played by the star of Goal the dream begins and if anyone has seen that you know the pure skill that this actor has inside of him and the passion that he brings to the screen. I don't know how long that i have been waiting for this movie to be released but it is definitely about time and i cant wait to go and see it. It should be released in early 2009 do make sure to go and check it out.
