Crossing Over: Movie Draws Attention to DREAMers

For those lucky enough to have some money left over to go to the movies, I highly recommend Crossing Over.

Crossing Over is a multi-character canvas about immigrants of different nationalities struggling to achieve legal status in Los Angeles. The film deals with the border, document fraud, the asylum and green card process, work-site enforcement, naturalization, the office of counter terrorism and the clash of cultures.

The movie follows several people, one of them being an undocumented high school student. I know this will hit close to home for thousands of students in the same situation. And maybe it will shed some light into this issue that is often forgotten amid the immigration debate. This movie also has an all-star cast; including Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd, and Ray Liotta. Hopefully it will change some minds!

I for one will watch this movie just for Jim Sturgess. Weinstien has screwed around with this movie and others they have, changing movie dates time after time. i just hope it hasn't hurt the film.

This is pretty awesome... I posted my own version in underground undergrads.

It seems the date release has been horribly handed, however.
