Storyline

Maria Jose 'Majo' Tonorio is a tough LA street poet who spits from the heart. After meeting a talented DJ she cuts her first demo under the guidance of a small time hustler more interested in promoting Majo's sexuality than her lyrics. Soon a major label and its strong-arm executive come calling. Convinced that a record deal will deliver much needed money for the family, Majo is suddenly faced with some stark choices. Does she accept the deal and turn her back on the friends who got her to the precipice of success or does she let a golden opportunity slip away. Written by Anonymous

Amazing !
30 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you get a chance, watch this movie!!

First of all you don't need to like rap music in order to like this movie, i really enjoyed the tracks but it goes far beyond music! The plot is not like extremely original or twisted, but it feels like everything just fits together. Whats just amazing here, is the character development! I believed all the feelings the characters had and the reactions to different situations, which also requires good acting!

Filly Brown is a movie with a lot of love, heart, passion and great music!

I do not understand the 4,8 rating at all, read the other reviews here and watch yourself!
