Crossing Over Movie review

March 15, 2009

Crossing over movie is entertainment movie and able to attract the audience. Clearly influenced by the 2005 Oscar-winning Crash, writer/director Wayne Kramer’s multi-character, segmented story focuses on the hot button issue of immigration — illegal and otherwise — told from several vantage points. A teenager (Summer Bishil) is targeted as a potential terrorist because of an essay she wrote; a young mother (Alice Braga) fights to keep her child after being deported; an Australian actress (Alice Eve) prostitutes herself to get a green card. We also meet a Korean teen , a British musician, a Mexican worker and others, whose lives and dreams of American citizenship intersect with a group of people working for and closely with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in L.A. Chief among them is Max Brogan (Harrison Ford), a veteran but burnt-out agent not beyond bending the law to uphold the fading ideals that brought him to the job in the first place.
