| Story worth to be told but could have been better.
I never heard of the Mirabel sisters before, I do now and I agree it"s a story that has to be told. That said for a movie based on true events it could and should have been better. The story feels a bit bland and could have used some more explanations in every domain, the political agenda, the family background and so on are unexploited, or at least not enough. The movie is watchable though but it misses something to make it very good. The acting was good and that from the whole cast. Salma Hayek is always nice to watch. I don't regret watching it as I learned something I didn't knew before, but it's just going to be a one time viewing for me.
