I know a movie is not real life, but after watching this movie I understand better the life of Gloria Trevi. I am a fan, always been a fan of Gloria Trevi. So I am may be bias. The sad part, for me, is that nobody realized the years of "abuse" a public figure like Trevi can endure. I think this movie presents an excellent representation of what "child abuse and domestic abuse" looks like. The movie can be used as an example of the way child abusers start grooming their victims. Gloria seems stronger now, and I am really happy that she has raised stronger and continues having success.
