beautiful exploration of teenage friendships
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mari is a tough kid who moves into town. Yolanda, a sweet kid and good student with a happy home life, befriends this petty thief and all around grouch. A beautiful friendship blossoms around a backdrop of teenage drama, parental expectation, academic pressures, boys, immigrant communities, financial instability and our protagonists hopes and fears for the future. The director allows the friendship to grown in an organic and quite realistic way.

The movie is slow and the director does not spoon-feed the viewer. We are left to read between the lines, something which is facilitated by great (bilingual) performances all around.
