Beyond the Sea (Más Allá del Mar) not to be confused with the recent Bobby Darin biopic of the same English title, tells the story of the Mariel boatlift from Cuba.
It's ultimately a shallow effort.
Grants a quiet dignity to its subjects without sanctifying them. And the less-than-ideal outcome of many of their lives rings all the more powerfully for being so plainly presented.
Lisandro Perez-Rey's excellent documentary is a riveting account of one of the most extraordinary events in U.S. immigration history.
