Strong Story + sound/realistic science
4 November 2020 | by lgambisSee all my reviews

I love movies that combine strong narative elements with sound and realistic scientific facts. Alexis Gambis did this successfully with the fly Room when he told the story of crazy but brilliant scientist Calvin Bridges---he does it again with in his second feature, Sons of Monarchs, which incorporates the themes of immigration, family ties and the sense of belonging. Strong performances, especially from Tenoch Huerta and the other Mexican actors.
