Growing up in the Mission district of San Francisco, Che Rivera (Benjamin Bratt) has always had to be tough to survive. He's a powerful man respected throughout the Mission barrio for his masculinity and his strength, as well as for his hobby building beautiful lowrider cars. A reformed inmate and recovering alcoholic, Che has worked hard to redeem his life and do right by his pride and joy: his only son, Jes, whom he has raised on his own after the death of his wife. Che's path to redemption is tested, however, when he discovers Jes is gay. To survive his neighborhood, Che has always lived with his fists. To survive as a complete man, he'll have to embrace a side of himself he's never shown. Written by
In several of the "Cruising" scenes, the Thermador Cooler on Che's vintage car disappear and reappear several times throughout the scenes. When they show close-ups of the passenger side window, the Thermador Cooler (the tube device on top of the passenger side door) is gone, while in most of the long shots, it is back. In one close-up you can actually see the wear marks of where the cooler sits on top of the door frame where they took it off for the close up. See more »
Insightful, clever, funny, original, great story, characters and sound track
This is a film to see. Great as a "date" movie or even a family movie (if you don't mind the occasional f-bomb) this film has the same "human heart" found in Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, and Big Fat Greek Wedding. Its a great story told very well by very talented people who had something important to say.
I won't put in a spoiler because frankly I want you to see it as I did without knowing what its about. I want you to enjoy it's unfolding.
Whether you see this film in theaters (recommended) or watch it on PPV, Cable or DVD, I can _guarantee_ you'll see it because its one of the best independent films . . . one of the best films . . . I've seen in the last five years.
