Movie Info

Inspired by true events, Paola Mendoza and Gloria La Morte's deeply-personal family drama follows one devoted mother's quest to provide for her two beloved children after being abandoned in a strange new land. Columbia native Mariana (Mendoza) and her two children have just arrived in Queens, NY to be with her husband when he announces he'll be leaving for Miami and they're not welcome to join him. Left to fend for herself and her two young children in an unfamiliar city and no friends to speak of, Mariana struggles to find work while forming a close bond with a single mother named Preet (Sarita Choudury). Before long, Mariana has found a way to make some money through recycling, and her 10 year old son has stepped up to the task of becoming both father and brother to his impressionable young sister.more

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Left with pacing, composition and atmosphere, and scenes with the children in particular (Sebastian Villada Lopez and Laura Montana Cortez, each remarkable) have charm and authenticity.

The films sleeve-worn earnestness is both its strength and its primary flaw.

Audience Reviews for Entre nos (Between Us)

I really liked this movie. It is based on real-life...which are my favorite movies to watch. I was especially interested to know that the actress who played the mother (in the movie) was actually the real-life daughter of the mother in the story...AND the producer of the movie!! After watching this movie....you will acquire a deeper appreciation for what you do have in life.

Excellent Spanish film. Superb acting. Great plot. Must watch. Subtitles. About a woman whose husband runs out on her and her kids. People can relate to this. Emotional, interesting.

Jennifer Torres

Inspired by a true story,Entre Nos is an uplifting,tender,and very moving film about what a mother does during an unthinkable situation. Paola Mendoza does an amazing double job as the director of the film,and also in the role of the mother,giving a heart-tugging and inspiring perfomance. She make this film in honor of her mother,who she plays in the film,a loving and grateful gift to her mom. One of Michael Moore's 20 "Best Pictures" of 2009. A remarkable independent film from a very talented lady!
