I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of GIRL IN PROGRESS a few days ago. The movie was nice. I love mother-daughter flicks. I could definitely relate to how Ansieda (Cierra Ramirez) felt at times. Eva Mendes’ character Grace also reminded me of my mother a bit when I was growing up. Not that my mother was immature… She was just never really there. She was always working. Working hard to provide me with a good life.
As a mother the movie taught me and reminded how important communication is, and how important it is to pay attention to your children. Sometimes you can miss the smallest things that can eventually turn into a bigger issue! It also scared me a bit..I wonder how Gabriella is going to be like as a teenager! LOL
Asides from Girl In Progress being a mother-daughter flick, I loved that the actors cast in the movie were mostly latinos. There was a lot I could relate to,since I myself am a latina. (I love how Ansiedad ate pan con cafe every morning! My mom still does that!)It’s nice to see latino’s doing their thing in Hollywood! Cierra Ramirez definitely has a bright future in front of her!
The movie hits theatres May 11th and I highly recommend you go see it! It’ll be a nice Mother’s Day treat!
