As a screenwriter takes notes from Hollywood executives, her beautiful, diverse movie about a Black American woman traveling to Mexico slowly becomes a romantic comedy with an all-white cast. A quirky cerebral look into commercialism and greed, juxtaposed with a heartwarming movie that challenges stereotypes. "Una Great Movie" uses comedy to reflect on relevant contemporary issues. It is fun and humorous with a unique storytelling style that incorporates a professional cast mixed with local Mexican non-actors. The movie introduces refreshing new perspectives against common stereotypes, portraying a universal humanity rather than categories of difference. Two black girls in Mexico. A uniquely diverse movie. NOT an URBAN comedy or tale from the hood. NOT a movie about NARCOS or IMMIGRANTS. Just regular people of different races experiencing a moment of life together. This is DIVERSITY. These are the stories and images of which we need so many more. Not more minority-themed movies, but more human-themed movies that happen to have different races. This is how we come together and learn more about one another.
