Shelbie Bruce - Comments and Message Board

As a self-professed "gringo" being recently married to a Flor "look-a-like," I have always been captured by the emotions and dynaics of latinas when they have a conversation. When I saw poor Adam Sandler's character trying to "survive" a tongue-lashing by not only the mother, Flor, but by the wonderful Cristina, her daughter trying to convey the emotions of her mom.This one scene, among others made "Spanglish" a ssupriosingly romantic and hertfelt film. And the courage of Flor's convictions at the end despite the public tongue-lashing she receives from her daughter is a testament to the strength and bonds of her & her daughter.A terrific film....JG
