Synopsis


My Family
Featuring Jennifer Lopez in her first major big-screen role, Gregory Nava's My Family traces three generations of the Sanchez's, a Mexican-American family living in East Los Angeles. Beginning in the 1930s, the film outlines the struggles faced by Jose (Jacob Vargas) and Maria (Lopez) as a recently immigrated married couple raising a family. As Jose and Maria age, the focus shifts to their son, Jimmy (Jimmy Smits), as he starts his own family in the 1960s. While Lopez' role was uncredited, she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her performance. My Family has also been released under the titles My Family, Mi Familia, Cafe Con Leche, and East L.A. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    Remembering your family roots

    It's good to watch a movie about the struggles that most hispanic families went through when coming to this country. Sometimes we take for granted the things parents do for their families when they try to find a better life for us. You don't see that many latino actors in one movie nowadays and i'm glad that My Family found its way into everybody's home. I recommend this film to anybody that wants to remember where they came from or just want to enjoy a movie that will touch your heart.
