Under the Same Moon last night and loved it. It is in Spanish, so you must deal with subtitles (unless you understand Spanish!), but it is so worth it. The little boy, Carlitos, above, lives in Mexico with his grandmother. His mother, an illegal, lives and struggles in L.A. She has called him every Sunday morning, for four years, from the same phone booth. When his grandmother dies suddenly Carlitos sets out to get to L.A. and find his mother before the Sunday call, so she won't worry when he doesn't answer. His journey is the story. This little actor, Adrian Alonso, is incredible and while the story has a few flaws and tugs, occasionally rather shamelessly, on your heartstrings, it is moving nonetheless.
Your reaction may be affected by whatever your personal feelings are about immigration and especially illegal immigration, but, for me, it is an important reminder that behind the politics and rhetoric the issue is really still just about a fellow human being striving to improve her life and the life of her child.
