Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An incredible surprise!
22 November 2007 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

There are many good movies out there. Yet, there are very few amongst them that carry you and take you to a place of peace, or what I like to call cinematic bliss. The last movie I can remember that left me in such a state was the SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION about five years ago. I sat down just to watch nude scenes of Roselyn Sanchez, the protagonist, and ended up completely drawn by the deep drama the movie throws at you. It has been a while since I witness the depth of emotion that she displayed almost as if she had lived the experience herself. Roselyn should get an award for such a performance.

I am almost mad at the little publicity that the movie was given and the horrible "crappy movie look" of the cover. Its true that we shouldn't judge any book by its cover but now a days we can't help it with so many movies out there. They should display more of the real threads of the movie in the cover and back cover shots.

No matter though, since I was lucky enough to sit down to watch it and the movie was awesome enough not to let me stand up till the end of the credits. Two thumbs up to Roselyn and her crew for such an incredible journey!
