Family: a necessary burden. Amaryllis Campos is young and beautiful, a classically trained dancer delivering pizzas in Puerto Rico, living with her parents and her drug-selling chump of a boyfriend, her dream deferred. When family tragedy and betrayal hit in the same week, she goes to New York with help from an unlikely friend. There, she lucks into an apartment and befriends an elderly neighbor. She looks for work, taking a job at a strip club. By day, she answers casting calls; at night, she's a hit at the Club Labrador. When the possibility of romance appears unexpectedly, Amaryllis must choose between its promise and the faint shadow of her dream. Written by
This was a really sad movie that didn't seem to get too much attention from anyone. Rush Hour 2's Roselyn Sanchez plays "Yellow" a Puerto Rican woman who grew up being a dancer. When her father dies she leaves her mother and boyfriend whom she hates to find a career in dancing.
Yellow moves to New York where her life becomes even worse as she searches for a job. A stripper becomes her only means of money so she takes the job :D ;P.
It is the sort of movie that you are thankful you have family to care for you and that you're not alone. I can understand why a lot of people didn't like it though, unless you can relate to the Puerto Rican culture you probably don't care to much about Yellow. Maybe you'd be like "Oh that happens a lot of there probably" but no it happens every where and all the time.
A movie about people who are alone but find happiness again through loved one's. A very sad movie with only a few main characters that all seem to be alone and can't find anyone to save them.
