Storyline

This is the story of three brave women; Patria, Minerva, and Maria Teresa, they were known as the Mirabal Sisters, born into a privileged family in the fields of Salcedo. At that time, the Dominican Republic was under the sway of the dictator, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina, who has ruled the country with an iron fist since 1930. This is the story of how Minerva and her sisters dared to defy the mad dictator and his ruthless government, alongside some allies and family members as well. But this act of bravery and courage leads to tragic consequences, but an inspiration for the people. Written by Emphinix

Don't waste your time
30 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this for Michelle Rodriguez, and hope she had fun making it, because it was not fun watching. Production standards are lower than TV, giving the movie the feel of an after-school special or soap opera. I suppose that's normal for Latin America, but why anyone would watch this is mystifying, as it seems written for elementary schoolers, yet contains brutal torture scenes that are the only half-effective part of the film because of this naive and amateurish ambiance. We learn that heroic main characters will die, and the film proceeds to tell the story of how they do hardly anything, are pushed around, and finally do nothing as they are killed. Even if you are used to this poor quality and have a stake in the history, movie film is pointless. Worse than pointless because the myth of the Mirabals seems mostly to be fetishizing their sex rather than their revolutionary principles.
