Growing up in the Mission district of San Francisco, Che Rivera (Benjamin Bratt) has always had to be tough to survive. He's a powerful man respected throughout the Mission barrio for his masculinity and his strength, as well as for his hobby building beautiful lowrider cars. A reformed inmate and recovering alcoholic, Che has worked hard to redeem his life and do right by his pride and joy: his only son, Jes, whom he has raised on his own after the death of his wife. Che's path to redemption is tested, however, when he discovers Jes is gay. To survive his neighborhood, Che has always lived with his fists. To survive as a complete man, he'll have to embrace a side of himself he's never shown.Written by

In several of the "Cruising" scenes, the Thermador Cooler on Che's vintage car disappear and reappear several times throughout the scenes. When they show close-ups of the passenger side window, the Thermador Cooler (the tube device on top of the passenger side door) is gone, while in most of the long shots, it is back. In one close-up you can actually see the wear marks of where the cooler sits on top of the door frame where they took it off for the close up. See more »

This movie is smart, passionate, down to earth, poignant, heartbreaking and heartwarming. Superb acting, scenery, setting and supporting cast.
Benjamin Bratt and Erika Alexander are inspired in starring roles. But the supporting cast is rich with excellent actors. The resultant effect is a true ensemble feeling. Intertwined with the main story - about a man and his high school son who is emerging as a gay man - are many subplots that help paint a richer picture of the barrio and the culture:
There are the low rider cars - colorful and flamboyant. And there is the life of the neighborhood, hanging on the stoops, getting along with the people next door.
This is a must see.
