  • Selena succeeds, through Lopez's performance, in evoking the magic of a sweet and talented young woman. show more

  • This is a simple story of hope and triumph, of one girl with the drive to succeed defying the odds and following her dream. It's not an original tale -- movies like this abound -- but Nava's point-of-view is fresh. show more
