A Young Woman's Life Dealing with a Desperate Mother
21 April 2012 | by (https://amarisali.wordpress.com/) – See all my reviews

The film as a whole revolves around the lead's mother Lucy and her almost desperation to have a significant other and keep them until she is mistreated. A new man is introduced, but before coming onto the mother her comes onto her and this sets in motion the movie.

In pursuit of her getting her mother to see the guy as a jerk, she herself slowly in some ways sees her own faults in character.

The movie itself is well acted and the dialog comes off very authentic, even if the situation seems a bit hard to understand. The young lady who plays Lena really keeps hold of you throughout the movie and the supporting characters for her tale really make this movie seem almost like it is entirely reenacted, rather than a brand new script written by a Irish man with a predominately Hispanic cast.

It really is a good movie, and considering this is the first for the lead, it sets a good foundation for what is to come.
