Real, raw, and worth seeing
25 November 2012 | by feldman-carlaSee all my reviews

While I normally avoid films with tragedy, and have never written a film review, I highly recommend this film. I was privileged to attend its screening in Los Angeles this week, and Gregori Martin has succeeded in conveying the emotion, lifestyle, true events and tragedy that befell the life of his young cousin in the New York Puerto Rican community that both nurtured and unraveled a young and promising life. Although I tend toward the light plotted-romantic comedy, this film spoke to me. I hope others get the opportunity to know the true story, and see the brilliant contributions that were made by all who contributed to its making.
