The Cuban will steal your heart!
22 May 2020 | by klagoszniakSee all my reviews

Just watched The Cuban on the super channel last night and it's a beautiful movie about the power of music and hope! I was born and raised in Brantford and It's also a love letter to our city and having done through a parent having vascular dementia, this film touched my heart ! Bravo! Great cast and a timely poignant story-a must see!
