I left this year's Sundance Film Festival with two films I promised myself to champion as much as I could throughout the year: Sin Nombre and The Cove. I've already shared with you the trailer for The Cove, and now it's time to throw a little more love at Sin Nombre, which not only took home an award for Best Cinematography at Sundance, but our friend Cary Joji Fukunaga also won Best Director for his gritty romantic thriller about three teenagers whose lives intersect on top of a train traveling through Mexico and heading for the border.

Gang warfare, romance, heartbreak, redemption -- all of it mixed with the harsh ghettos and stunning landscapes of Mexico, featuring gut-wrenching performances from a group of newcomers; some of whom had never acted in a film before. To quote my own Sundance review: "With Sin Nombre, Fukunaga has crafted the sort of too-real-it-hurts story that you simply must enjoy on the big screen in order to feel the film's beautiful loneliness and share its brilliance with those you care most about."

So do yourself a favor and go watch this flick when it hits theaters on March 20th. Check out the trailer below ...
