A movie worth watching to help understand the struggle of immigration
31 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frontera is a great story about the struggle and reality of immigration and the consequences Americans face while trying to take the law in their own hands. It gives you a understanding of the struggle and experiences Mexicans take to cross the border for a chance to work and help provide for their families back in Mexico. It also shows the struggle what Americans face dealing with the property damage and violence that occurs during the trip across the border. This movie will help you appreciate the life you have as an American and the understanding the reality Mexicans sacrifice for a chance at the American dream.
