Two Movies I Have Recently Seen.

I have been watching lots of movies lately from Netflix streaming. One of them though really hit home for me, really good movie. Had in me tears. The movie is called Entre Nos/Between Us based on a true story. The actress who plays the mother is Paola Mendoza who in real life is the daughter. The movie is about a Colombian woman mother of two who comes to this country with her husband. He ends up abandoning her and her two children. It's in Spanish with English subtitles. It was very sad to see the things she had to go through. I'm not going to spoil the movie by saying anything else but if you haven't seen it, you should. Be warned, it can be depressing. I had to watch another movie afterwards to get myself out of depressing state it put me in.

It is sad to know that many families still go through the same situation she went through in this day and age. By following the link you can watch a trailer in Spanish and English and see an interview with the actress and her familia. You can even watch a video on how to make empanadas which is something the mother used to make to sell. Great, now I'm hungry, lol. If you would like to support immigration reform click here.

Another movie I saw was Broken English with Parker Posey. Very good movie. It's about a woman who feels everyone around her seems to have found the perfect man but her. Her mother tries to set her up and so does her best friend played by Drea de Matteo. I really enjoyed it. Actually this is how I have been feeling lately, lol. But like we say in Puerto Rico, mejor sola que mal acompaƱada/better alone than in bad company! Yes, it is a chick flick so you might not want to watch it with your boyfriend/husband. Great movie for a girls night in!
