Under the Same Moon ("La Misma Luna")
Source: Catholic News Service
Touching story of a 9-year-old Mexican boy (Adrian Alonso) who, following the death of his grandmother and temporary guardian (Angelina Pelaez), pays two American siblings (America Ferrera and Jesse Garcia) to smuggle him across the border so that he can reunite with his mother (Kate del Castillo), working in the United States illegally to improve his future. Along the way he forms an unlikely friendship with a tough, go-it-alone farm laborer (Eugenio Derbez). Director Patricia Riggen's restrained feature debut movingly dramatizes a real-life plight affecting millions of children, with all three leads turning in luminous performances. In Spanish. Subtitles. Occasional crude, crass and profane language, and a sexual reference; probably acceptable for older teens. A-III -- adults. (PG-13) 2008
