Know anyone who was/is a legitimate immigrant? I mean, to ANY country, from ANY country? If you do, then you will love this movie. Why? Because the hopes, wishes, the fears, and the belief that you will become a permanent resident of another place from whence you came will be the story in their heart, and in yours. It is a forgiving, cathartic experience to understand the drive to become. And then, of course, there is love. The great complicator. Enough said.
