MARIA FULL OF GRACE - opening July 30 at Embarcadero Center Cinema
Writer/director Joshua Marston's feature debut depicts one young woman's journey from a Colombian town to the streets of New York. Seventeen-year-old Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno) lives with her family in a cramped house in rural Colombia and works stripping thorns from flowers in a rose plantation. A lucrative offer of a job involving travel-in fact, becoming a drug "mule"-changes the course of her life. Far from the uneventful trip she is promised, Maria is transported into the risky and ruthless world of international drug trafficking and her mission becomes one of determination and survival. In Spanish; fully subtitled in English.
