It doesn't matter who played what in this movie. What's important is the message for equal treatment of all race. Did you know that because of what these people did back then allowed Spanish to be one of the requirements to graduate from high school and college? Did you know that the Spanish language is the second highest language spoken in our schools today? This movies isn't about the pretty or handsome actresses who played these parts. It's getting the message that we will not stand for unequal treatment no matter who we are.
I really enjoy the movie and it touched my heart because it made me be proud to be a Mexican American even though I'm half. =)
