Mea culpa. I’m one of those people who complain that there are never any good movies out there. Maybe it’s that they now cost $10 to see in my area and I’m just cheap. Or really, really picky. But this weekend, I’m determined to see La Misma Luna (Under The Same Moon) that released yesterday on 275 screens. Opening weekends can make or break a film (unless you’re incredibly, indecently fortunate like Diablo Cody of Juno fame).
When I hear people complain that minorities are not represented in entertainment, I tell them to put their money where their hearts are. In other words, go see the movies and watch the shows and buy the books created by the people you want to see more of.
La Misma Luna has been getting great reviews and was the prize of a bidding war between distributors at Sundance. So unless you want to see more crap like Drillbit Taylor, I highly suggest that we take a stand against stupidity and support intelligent, emotionally resonant cinema like La Misma Luna.
