This is a wonderful character-driven film that is timely, heartbreaking, redemptive, and important. COLLISIONS was made a few years ago, before the awful immigration policies of the U.S. government went full-on nuclear toward our southern neighbors. Ahead of its time, it shows the big picture of what's going on with our border wars with a fairly simple story of a loving, broken, and displaced Mexican family going through a harrowing experience that threatens their survival as a unit. I just found out that the young actress, Izabella Alvarez, won the Imagen Award for her key role in it. That's what reminded me of the film, and the reason to post this review. Do yourself a favor, and check out not just her moving performance, but a a great indie flick, as well!
