UNDER THE SAME MOON (LA MISMA LUNA) tells the parallel stories of nine-year-old Carlitos and his mother, Rosario. In the hopes of providing a better life for her son, Rosario works illegally in the U.S. while her mother cares for Carlitos back in Mexico. Unexpected circumstances drive both Rosario and Carlitos to embark on their own journeys in a desperate attempt to reunite. Along the way, mother and son face challenges and obstacles but never lose hope that they will one day be together again. Riggen’s film is not only a heartwarming family story; she also offers subtle commentary on the much-debated issue of illegal immigration

I did not bother watching the trailer--------the title alone made me shake my head in disgust

Political refugees are one thing; the economic variety are not our problem.

In Mexico's case: few people are starving there these days.

If one wants to see real poverty; there is always Sub Saharan Africa.

The man said "real poverty" as in absolutely nothing to eat, or own or even the barest necessities of life.
American ghettos, though bleak and dismal, are nothing as compared to oh lets say Dar fur, or Rhodesia of the present..................


sorry I had to cut short but when the Tornado sirens blow I split really quick.

Completely agree with you again, this is just purposely political. I mean they could do a movie where instead of coming to the US, "Carlitos" can leave his poor Mexican village and engage on a cross-country (Mexico that is) let's say from Chiapas to Monterrey or from Chichuahua to Guadalajara.

Hell, or "Manana en El Mar" where they reunite on a beach in Cancun

Better yet, a story about a boy in Los Angeles named "Carl" whose mom "Rose" ran a housekeeping business but couldn't survive because of the wages being depressed by the invasion of illegal aliens. At the same time, their community is torn apart by drug violence brought by illegal Mexican and Salvadoran gangs. Rose finds a new start and tries to start a new career across the country in Atlanta. Carl desperately saves some money, buys a Greyhound ticket and heads east in a journey across America......

How about one about a drug dealer or prostitute that leaves a child with a grandmother to go out an make some money? Unexpectedly, they end up in prison for breaking the law. The story is heartwarming as they long to see each other and wait for the day they can be reunited.
