film synopsis

José works as a delivery man for a Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, saving money to bring his pregnant girlfriend to the U.S. from Mexico. But his true passion is for the soccer games he plays on the weekends, where he is the star player. When his boss asks him to work on the day of the championship game, he faces a terrible choice between his personal and professional obligations. He can’t afford to lose his job, but is it worse to let his friends down?

A gentle crowd-pleaser filmed in a neo-realist style, Jim McKay’s deceptively simple comedy never needs to raise its voice or get polemical, but it speaks volumes about the immigrant experience in America. Using a largely nonprofessional cast (sourced from open auditions and from the streets and playing fields of Brooklyn), McKay opens our eyes and our hearts to a world that’s rarely captured so authentically on film.
