This 2005 film by Andy Garcia (both director and leading actor) recounts the effect of the 1959 Cuban Revolution on one family. The movie is a wonderful way to clarify one's often cloudy personal history of that event. (Remember Castro's ticker-tape parade in New York City?) It is engaging, moving, beautifully filmed, and has a soundtrack to die for. Need I say more?
Some critics said it was too long. I watched it with a friend who is notorious for wandering away 5 minutes into any movie we watch at home. She never moved an inch.
Available on Netflix. (And probably lots of other places as well.)
