iamlb68 is on the defense a little, there has always been a lot of back and forth opinions about immigrants from Mexico crossing the border illegally. They are doing the field work, for me it is neither negative or a positive part of what things are, it is what it is. The film brings out the complications of our lives, we all make choices and making the right ones will for the most part, bring good things into our lives and some not so good, this film is inspirational in doing what we can do in making life as good as possible-if we set our minds to it, this film is in the same realm as another very positive film, The Blind Side.
