Saw this film in New York. The acting, cinematography, and timing are absolutely beautiful, as well as absorbing. I was stunned when I saw the film. This quality is rarely seen anymore. There was excellent original music, which enhanced the mood of the film, subtly supporting the acting. The setting was stunning--apparently the Central Coast of California. The message was also one that more Americans should hear--that we are all alike and have the same relationships (even if you are a Mexican laborer). The acting was real; the relationship between the father and son was totally believable. We need more films like this--with originality in topic and presentation. This film is a "must see."
