A Film for You
13 January 2008 | by xrusSee all my reviews

This movie was playing at the San Diego Film Festival when I saw it. It apparently won the audience choice award, which is no surprise. This is a movie that anyone can understand and relate to.

If you have ever lived by or visited any country's border, have ever had a best friend, have ever had an opinion on the recently increasingly controversial immigration issue, been in love, ever had an adrenaline rush and liked it, have ever tried to "find yourself", tried to make a quick buck, known an immigrant - legal or illegal , felt like you didn't belong, or had a run-in with the law whether you were innocent or guilty, you can appreciate this movie.

Sure there's some bad acting, but this film has all the right elements to move you. There's action and suspense, humor, love, and drama all there for your enjoyment. You've gotta see it for yourself and determine if you like it. I loved it and can't wait to see it again. It is unbelievable that this was a low budget, independent film!
