So Monday night, when my wife texted me RedBox's free Monday Code, I knew I had to do better this time. The new releases were all predictable, seen, or undesirable. So I turned to some older recent dvd's. My eye was caught by one I hadn't heard much about, but had a decent actor and the plot sounded interesting/human. And it was PG-13 - which we all know is the 80's "R". But I figured it was worth a shot.
It was a great movie. (watch the preview)
I don't want to say much more, and of course - it's not perfect. But I'm not sure what I would have changed (maybe left out the small amount of cussing in one scene.) For anyone who is hungry for a movie that will inspire and challenge you at the same time, as well as come as a breath of fresh air to anyone who's watched the garbage that seems to dominate box offices - rent this movie. Especially if it's a free redbox code night. :)
It captures well the struggle anyone approaching the issue of immigration should have.
