I LOVE this movie! It's a great movie to watch around Thanksgiving or Christmas time. Cultural ties can be made to religious groups/traditions (if desired) as well as illegal vs. legal immigration. Salma Hayek is the director of the movie.
The poor town at the center of this movie is located on the Mexican/US border. The residents have been handed a tough blow - no jobs, no cash, no happiness. One day, a young boy arrives in town, searching for his missing father. Be sure to watch this one until the credits start rolling!
The movie sheet has English questions for students to answer while watching the movie. **Includes answer key** Enjoy!
