See it if Seeking her roots, bubbly 22-y.o. Maria visits her aunt's family in PR. Farcical scenes ensue. Light, enjoyable satire w/vocal audience.
Don't see it if You don't speak Spanish & don't like super-titles. You want a more serious drama, rather than a cute romantic slice-of-life.
See it if You like stories that are so relevant with all that is going on in our world. It's extremely well done.
Don't see it if If you have a hard time reading subtitles in English
“All the characters in ‘La Gringa’ have a strong streak of the ridiculous in them, and it is precisely that quality that makes them familiar and lovable...Rivera has captured the spirit of the Puerto Rican experience...The plot tatters and the story gets emotionally confused in the last 10 minutes as Ms. Rivera tries to bring peace and reconciliation to all. But that is after 90 minutes of laughter, and a delight ratio of 9 to 1 would be a very high score for any theatrical veteran.”
