Under the Same Moon
2008
In this tale illuminating the plight of illegal aliens, Kate del Castillo plays Rosario, a woman working illegally in the United States to provide a better life for her son Carlitos (Adrian Alonso), who remains at home in Mexico. Longing for his mother, Carlitos stows away on a van that's headed for the border. But an already treacherous journey becomes even more so when Carlitos is separated from his smugglers (Jesse Garcia and America Ferrera).

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This tale of a Mexican boy who sneaks across the border to find his mother in Los Angeles loses points for being predictable and too overtly political, but it has scenes with real heart and its characters feel real. It's not great but worth a rental.
