Overview

A man with little positive to say about illegal immigrants finds himself working with one in this comedy drama from director Matthew Bonifacio. Bruno Carmine Famiglietti is an Italian-American guy who lives in Queens, NY, and has lost his job. While Bruno has been looking for work, a steady job has been hard to find, and with his unemployment running out, he needs to start making some money. Someone arranges for Bruno to do some temporary work in landscaping and household construction, and he finds himself working alongside some of the Hispanic day laborers who wait every morning on Northern Boulevard looking for work. Bruno is not the most open-minded guy on Earth and initially bristles at the prospect of sharing the workspace with illegal aliens, but after a few days working with Ignacio Raúl Castillo, the two strike up a rapport, even though Bruno can't speak Spanish and Ignacio knows no English. Bruno develops a genuine respect and admiration for Ignacio and his wife, Gabriela Jennifer Peña, through their hard work and determination to improve their lives, but their legal status ensures their story will not end well. Amexicano was screened as part of the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

    A superb and meaningful indie

    I saw this wonderful film when it was an official Tribeca Film Festival selection in 2007 and I have never forgotten it. A meaningful, timely and emotional story enhanced further by great performances by the cast. I am so glad to see "Amexicano" finally available on DVD. Buy or rent it as soon as you can!!!
