| Important story, but poorly cast and repetitive.
The story of undocumented families in America is an important one, and deserves to be told. It's an emotional and evocative subject, which the film attempts to handle humanely and on a personal level. Unfortunately, this film suffers from some bad casting and repetitive storytelling. Bad Casting: Our starring character, Rose, has about 3 acting modes/ emotions. It's like she has separate little programs for "sad" or "angry" that run through a prescribed set of facial expressions and actions that play out the same way every time she copy and pastes that emotion. If you've seen her cry once, you've seen her cry every time. I caught myself being annoyed with her, rather than sympathetic, as she indulged in teenage dramatics. Her singing voice, while lovely, is definitely not country. She favors the big, belting style of soul singers. Occasionally, she'll remember and slip in a twang, but it's pretty rare, and only when she's singing with another country singer. Her Texan accent is likewise treated like a sweater in the middle of summer: rarely put on and largely left forgotten. The bar owner comes across as creepy and weirdly absent; I kept expecting her to turn around and sell Rose or something, instead of viewing her as a kindly good samaritan. Dale, while a perfect country singer, never hits that paternal note, and more than one person in our group got the strange feeling that he and Rose would wind up green-card married. Which I know isn't what they were going for, so the actor chemistry is way off. Repetitive: There are only so many times you can see a teenager angrily stuff things into a bag before you stop caring.
