Synopsis

In the Robert Towne directed adaptation of John Fante’s Depression Era novel, Hayek plays the fiery Mexican beauty Camilla who hopes to rise above her station by marrying a wealthy American. This is complicated when she meets Arturo Bandini (Farrell), a first-generation Italian hoping to land a writing career and a blue-eyed blonde on his arm

Dove Review

This film lacks in having enough story to carry it for two hours. Two people coming to America to live “the American dream” yet failing. They fall in love despite their differences. There were many instances where fornication was strongly implied and a man and woman were unmarried and living together. The acting was good but there were really no lessons learned and no consequences for the character’s bad choices. The drug use in the film sinks this movie from being Dove approved.
