I was lucky enough to see this at its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. I felt like I was privvy to one of those things that's going to become huge, BEFORE it becomes huge -- kind of like the first people who saw something like "Little Miss Sunshine" and probably thought, "wow... what a special movie. I hope it gets picked up so people get the opportunity to see it." It felt like I was watching movie stars in the making, because the performances were so rock- solid and honest. Raul Castillo and Jennifer Pena were truly captivating, the direction was perfect, and the music was fantastic. I don't recall the last time I saw a movie where the audience was so glued to the screen, because they had fallen in love with the characters and their struggle. If you get the chance to see it, you should.
