December 10, 2009
A tender, sweet coming of age story, based on the memoir of Esmerelda Santiago, about a young girl transplanted from Puerto Rico to New York in the early sixties. Newcomer Ana Maria Lagasca shines as the young woman trying to honor her hard working mother and her PR culture while attending the NY High School for the Performing Arts and its high demands. Her family may be poor, but they are proud. They may struggle to learn English and American ways, but they are hard working and upwardly mobile. The family may be quite large, even enormous by our standards, but that only means there is more love to go around. This was inspiring and heart-warming and just plain entertaining. Produced for PBS, the production values are top-notch. It refrains from showing us the grittier side of working in sweat shops and applying for public assistance, but there are hints of that darker side, if one looks. This viewer enjoyed it for what it was, one woman's recollection of what it was like to feel suspended between two incompatible cultures and finding her way.
