funny, visceral, touching and quirky
3 August 2014 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

Paloma is not your average single, outgoing and clingy mom, she and her teenage son Hector do just about everything together. While enjoying an offseason vacation at a nearly empty resort, mother and son frolic in the pool, discuss the delicate details of life, and even get critical of each other's attire. Sparks and cat claws fly when a teenage girl named Jazmin gets between Paloma and her baby. This funny as well as visceral, touching and quirky film contains many hilarious scenes. It is also slow-paced and lacking in depth. One really feels for Paloma as she rides an emotional roller coaster and struggles so mightily with what may be beyond her power to control or even influence in a significant way. Seen at the 2014 Miami International Film Festival.
