Yup! Another Oscar-nomination review! Tonight was the movie of the subject line. I had heard a story about it on NPR months ago and had wanted to eventually rent it. Since it received a nomination for "Best Actor," it got put high up in the Netflix queue. Demian Bichir is the first actor in the category which I have seen, but he has rocketed to the top of my list. His performance of an illegal immigrant father of a son who is being tempted by the gang life of LA is stellar! The movie easily earns 4 out of 5 stars. I highly recommend this movie! It had both myself and Kitty in tears by the end. It was extremely powerful and very down-to-earth.
