Heartfelt and joyous -they don't make 'em like this in Hollywood!
I had the joy of seeing this film at the LA Film Festival. There is a very poetic feeling to the film that weaves effortlessly between tragedy (abandoned sons, lost loves, etc.) to pure comedy (the Speedo scene comes to mind) that takes the viewer on a journey along with the brothers.
Both actors, Andrew and Dillon, are engaging and the camera seems to love them. They bring an effortless charisma, vulnerability and joy to the screen that I have not seen in way too long. They are surrounded by a cast of natural "actors" who seem to slip easily between English and Spanish further cementing the theme of the brothers who belong to two different worlds. The third main character id the country of Columbia and we get a travelogue through it's cities, ports and countryside. They said in the Q and A after the screening that this was a labor of love. You can see that in every frame. If you get a chance to see this film -do it!
