Film “La Jaula De Oro”

Another adoptive mom posted about La Jaula De Oro (The Golden Cage), a movie about three Guatemalan teens attempting to get to the US. My friend–who has traveled widely through Central America–called the film “totally authentic; you really are in Guatemala, Chiapas, the desert.” My friend also noted the film “doesn’t pull any punches about what happens on that trip,” so I’m guessing it’s not suitable for young children. (I haven’t see the movie myself.) La Jaula De Oro won awards at Cannes in 2013 and is available on HBO until the end of the year.
