Movie Info

A lesbian couple of fifteen years lives with the secret that one is an illegal alien. With no legal way to protect their relationship, the couple lives in constant fear of deportation. One fateful day, during an innocent visit to the Statue of Liberty, security stops Nicole and Amy and runs a routine check. The immediate results turn up nothing and the girls are free to visit Lady Liberty. High tech storage lockers at the monument require keyless access via thumbprint. Like most visitors, the girls willingly complied with this heightened security measure and checked their bags before entering the monument. The girls enjoyed their day admiring Lady Liberty, then went home to Los Angeles; unaware that their fateful visit to this icon of freedom, was about to strip them of their own.

Critic Reviews for Maple Palm

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Torjan opts for shrillness, hysteria, heavy-duty acting from Stewart instead of trying for a lower pitch that would have allowed for much greater credibility -- and menace as well.

Takes a hot-button issue (here, it's homophobic U.S. immigration policies) and reduces it to dry sloganeering and shameless emotional manipulation of the audience.
