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
The funny thing on how I discovered this movie was when I saw a trailer for it attached to "Olympus Has Fallen" when I saw that movie back in March of this year. I remember after that, I had to look it up and I was able to that this movie is an indie film. I got lucky that it was released in my neck of the woods when I looked it up to see where it was playing.
I have to say that this a good independent film, but not a great one. There were some flaws in some areas like the ending for one thing, even though I see what they tried to do, but it felt a LITTLE awkward, not a lot. Same with a little romantic subplot that didn't really go anywhere.
Other than that, I liked the music of the movie. Also, the acting was pretty good, especially from Jenni Rivera. It was a real shame what happened to her. She died before this movie was released. I wonder if she even got to see it because I read that this movie was shown at film festivals before getting a wider release.
