outstanding view of emigration
9 January 2017 | by duaneincaliSee all my reviews

I saw x500 at the palm springs film festival January 7, 2017. The director spoke afterward. I was extremely impressed by this film. The film moves quickly and as there are 3 story lines it never lags. The director really was able to capture not only how difficult emigrating to a foreign land can be, but also the effects that has on the location. The acting was outstanding: quite a feat for a film starring newcomers. I was able to relate specifically to the maria character as I too got shipped to another country for high school; so I can say emphatically that the director really understands the topic. Also, in the Colombia portion of the film, the 2 9 year old boys gave amazing performances. It is a very moving film and I think just about anyone can relate to it as these type of issues are universal.
