Maria Full of Grace (US-Columbia, 2004)

This received a lot of critical attention when it was released; possibly for the documentary style of the mechanics of being a drug mule. The film’s more of a melodrama and an effective one. It may be a little too subtle in not spelling out the exploitation involved in working in the third world (by the first) – the flowers do signify this. Good performances though the direction is routine. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390221/
