Storyline

'Emilio' is the soulful tale of a young man (19 years) who leaves his village in Mexico looking for his kidnapped sister. His journey leads him to Los Angeles, where we see the city through the eyes of a penniless illegal immigrant on a desperate quest. The City of Angels itself becomes in a sense the second character of this movie as Emilio's needle-in-a-haystack search takes him through the gritty contrasts of Skid Row, East L.A., Echo Park, Watts, Torrance, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, and the West Hollywood hills. The panorama of characters he encounters include Mexican day laborers, drug dealers, transients, skateboarders, disco queens, actors, and upwardly mobile socialites constituting at once a searing social criticism and celebration of a city. As it moves towards its inexorable conclusion, this coming of age story comes into its own above all as an heroic portrait of determination. Written by Anonymous

Totally Boss Movie
1 March 2013 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

I have been waiting for this film to come out ever since I saw it at the New York HBO Latino Film Festival so I can tell my friends to see it. It's a great film -- hippest film about Mexicans in the US and the experiences they go through, and a heartbreaking story. Nothing like it anywhere. It's about Los Angeles mainly, but really it could be any big city in the US. This is real. I know lots of people like the ones in the movie. Just people trying to survive, and trying to help someone who is trying to find his sister. I won't give away the ending, but hopefully this film will be coming out so I can recommend it. I believe some of the actors in this movie will be big movie starts some day.
