Riding the midnight train
2 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Life is tough on the streets but this film really puts you in the middle of the chaos. A young autistic Mexican boy runs away and gets lost on the subway system of New York, his undocumented family goes haywire. They are forced to mend their splintered family differences and search for their lost young one. As a typical Latin mother, she bears the brunt of the worry and embodies the guilt of all her troubles. It is a tough world and this movie captures the craziness found within the underground world of the subway in New York City. Beautifully shot and you can feel the emotion of the boy. I saw this film as part of the Atlanta Film Festival.
