Keepin’ it 100 [word count begins now]:  A connection to family is important to reinforce our identity and how we view ourselves. We can often see ourselves in others, particularly family. This movie shows the protagonist’s attempt to reconnect to her Mexican heritage for promotion. It also highlights how some first-generation Americans may feel about their family’s old ways or traditions. As the threat grows, the protagonist must rely on the very people she sought to exploit for her salvation. Scary, twists, and a strange deviation from the central setting, help the film move. I still have questions—too many for the film to be over [99].
