It’s interesting to think about how, in an attempt to rebel against/fix the culture or status-quo, we often overcorrect and fall into the same dogma that we were trying to escape.
A compelling look at an immigrant family looking for the American dream.
This movie really made me think about what I want out of life and how capitalistic we think in American culture. We often attribute one thing/place/job to happiness, do whatever it takes to get it, then realize we missed the point.
The conversation between Jacob and Monica at the grocery store, after everything seemed to have worked out, really cemented the message of the movie for me.
Also, the acting is spectacular! The little boy and his grandmother were talking over scene after scene it was amazing.
