Quotes

[first lines]
Ashley: You want to help, Mr. Chavez?
Manager: Of course.
Ashley: Then why don't you give me a raise? I've been here a year already. They told me I would get a raise after three months.
Manager: You didn't get a raise because of your attitude.
Ashley: What's wrong with my attitude?
Manager: Look, Ashley, I have to treat you the same way I treat everyone else.
Ashley: Is that right? Why is it I always get the worst shift? I mean, everyone knows that you like Mexican girls best, the place is full of them.

Horrid synopsis, outstanding story
25 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Horridly misleading synopsis. More to the point: A poor Texas woman, about to lose her son to social services, tries to smuggle Mexicans across the border for $4000 and becomes morally responsible for the small girl left behind.

A poignant story of mixed emotions, futility and hope, from both sides of the event. I agree with Box Office Magazine when they say "Abbie Cornish gives the most impressive performance of her career."

Every site on which I post reviews has consistently found the above an example of "helpful" (acceptable) information and opinion. I cannot see where ten lines of babbling fluff are required over five lines of succinct information. If IMDb finds me too offensive to print, then I have no problem with not printing for them.
