I saw this film at the Bare Bones International Film Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma. With 5 days of solid film viewing, it is usually very difficult to sit through a whole feature film at these festivals. However, with Mexican Sunrise I could not leave my seat... and neither could the rest of the audience (made up of a lot of VERY critical filmmakers).
This film has everything you want in a Suspense/Thriller/Drama. It does a fantastic job of developing character relationships, while still keeping the story intense and compelling. The look and feel of the film definitely translates the storyline's 'grittiness'. Excellent casting, and the (for the most part unknown) actors deliver believable performances. I would love to go into this more, but I don't want to give anything away.
I would highly recommend seeing Mexican Sunrise on the big screen (are you listening Lions Gate, Rogue, Fox Atomic)...
