  • Kramer takes on a hot, unwieldy topic in Crossing Over -- the dream that immigrants have of U.S. citizenship and the nightmare of achieving it, especially with shortcuts. I'm sure Kramer will be picked to pieces for trying something while Hollywood crap climbs the box office ladder. There are all kinds of nightmares. show more

  • Wayne Kramer's interlocking saga of immigration in 21st-century America definitely crosses over, from workaday mediocrity to distinctive dreadfulness. show more

  • Harrison Ford - in his best role in years - and Cliff Curtis are the main reasons to see the film. show more

    It was a powerful, moving story about our country\'s immigrqation policies, which on the one hand have to be in place for security purposes, and the human trajedy of enforcment in some ************* when families are split/ripped apart.; ie the deportation of one parent and one sibling to Iraq, never to see her two siblings or her father agai And the crushing ending when the young mother who was deported by Harrison Ford, who then finds her son and brings him to his grandparents in Mexico; all the while trying to re-unite mother and son, only to find out she died trying to cross the desert and sneak into the nUS on foot. My maternal grandparents were Italian immigrants who couldn\'t read, write, or speak English when they arrived on Ellis Island, but made the most of their opportunities and earned their respect based on hard work, familal values (11 kids to work the fileds). You coukld appreciate thendpt mof Homeland \'security\'s perspoective, and how some of the immigrants needed to be sent back. I thought it was awesome. Charlie Boyd

    What a cast! Too bad though. Couldn'******* the whole movie. I guess Hollywood cannot produce a product without their far left slant..

    A fast paced absorbing film depicting the many faces of immigration. It graphically shows how it impacts people in ways we spend little time considering. This was multi-faced and multi-faceted film worthy of anyone's time and money. c e st john
