As a first generation child, the stories of my very own parents crossing resemble the same of which the movie portrays. When my parents saw the bikes they road across the desert, a scoff was shared. "This never happens, the terrain is too tough. No coyote would seriously take this many bikes." Walking is the only way to get across. Yes, gang members and coyotes themselves, take women, rape and beat them. This is true. Highlighting the dangers, high-five.
Actors: If you are going to try and get an authentic feel. Get actors who speak spanish. Nothing about their dialect, showed a native, fresh from across the border.
What peeved me off the most. Is the director and writer. IS A WHITE MAN. How is a white man, going to portray this very real raw story?
Now, I thank this white man for getting our stories out. Just do it better. Watch this movie, take it in. Just remember the struggle is 300 times more then in this movie.
