The movie was fine, but I was unsatisfied at the end.
Unsatisfied with the fact that the movie was over two hours long, and the daughter’s essay (the entire narrative) seemed ##  "\t\tjustice.
Look for the critical moment when Flor brings her own emotions under control and discerns the critical question that Cristina must face.
This clip vividly illustrates the remarkable relational wisdom of this young mother.
Tenderness and compassion, and an admiration for basic virtues, are rare in film.
Spanglish has all three-and this imperfect but funny and touching film deserves more credit than it's likely to get.
Deborah becomes fond of Cristina and starts to treat her as a daughter, taking her shopping and getting her a scholarship to a private school.
As the characters surmount various challenges together, Flor realizes that she and John are developing a dangerously close relationship.
Some time ago, my girlfriend and I watched the movie Spanglish, a comedy/drama/dramedy telling the story of a mother (Flor) and daughter (Cristina) who had emigrated from Mexico to start a new life in the USA.
The movie is narrated from the view of the daughter, through her college application essay to Princeton University.
