True story well told and better acted
20 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are spoilers in this review. I have never reviewed, but feel compelled to do so now because another review is so misleading, suggesting this movie had nothing to do with the facts of the events on which it was based. I, like that reviewer, did my own research, and can say that the facts in the film are amazingly accurate but for the fact that the film soft peddles the captivity. Google "Eduardo Garcia Valesca kidnapping" and you'll locate the Washington Post article about same, and will learn that the events as written in the script are accurate: the wife was initially taken and then released; she did not have title to the family's liquid assets or the land (generally the case in the U.S. until a few decades ago, and not at all unusual in a patriarchal society where the wife is not participating actively in the family business or financial affairs); etc. I only watched because I'm a huge fan of Morales and Polo (he for 20+ years, she for 5+), and this movie didn't disappoint. He turns in his usual solid performance, but she shows dimensions I've never seen from her. She's always real and restrained, but is so raw at times here, the hair stood up on the back of my neck.

This movie merits at least 8 out of 10 stars for made-for-TV given the horrid state of writing currently available. But for an opportunity to watch an underrated actress show her best chops, it's a 10.
