MARIA FULL OF GRACE shines a light from above on a dark corner of the American dream. Catalina Sandino Moreno is mesmerizing in her screen debut as a young woman from Colombia who endures a harrowing journey to the United States as a drug mule. Writer/director Joshua Marston's film is presented in Spanish, but speaks volumes about America and the beacon of hope it continues to shine on countries around the world. The film's power lies in its natural storytelling, where nothing is forced, but tension rules.
