Bajo La Misma Luna

Saw this movie last weekend and trust me this preview does not do it any justice.
This movie is about Arnold Schwarzenegger's veto to allow undocumented people to obtain driver's licenses, the risks immigrants face in coming to the US, the daily terror that day laborers endure to earn a day's worth of wages, and tying it all together is the story of young boy risking it all to be reunited with his mother in the US.

It was most definitely a tear-jerker, but it was amazing to see so many Latina/o families all sitting in one theatre. Hey, it's not everyday we get the chance to see so many brown faces, amazing Latina/o actors and performers all on one screen, and especially in mainstream venues.
