Gente De Zona,
Lila, a grief-stricken mother reeling from her son's murder, attends a support group where she meets Eve, who urges her to take matters into her own hands to track down her son's killers. They soon embark on a journey of revenge, but also recovery.
Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez are an incredible team together. I'm surprised this movie didn't get more recognition - it certainly deserves it. Lila and Eve is about the story of two grieving mothers who want more than just comfort over the death of their children, but revenge. Lila, especially, learns not only about the grieving process but about herself and eventually how to accept what is and what is not within her control.
Without a doubt, JLo is stunning in this movie. I often forget how talented this lady is, as both a musician and an actor. This is probably her best performance yet. Viola Davis also gives an incredible and accurate portrayal of a grieving mother conflicted over the sudden murder of her son.
A beautiful drama. Beware there is a plot twist. I won't spoil it for anyone here, but it's not too hard to figure out when you get into the film.
