Maria Full of Grace
Cert: 15 Year: 2004 Length: 100 mins Language: Subtitles
To escape poverty and unemployment a young Columbian woman accepts a dangerous job. Swallow 60 pellets full of heroin and smuggle them into the USA.
Featuring an Oscar nominated performance from Catalina Sandino Moreno this is the gripping and harrowing tale of one of the many thousands of drug 'mules' that enter America every year. Non-judgmental in its approach and following the details of the process - recruitment, instruction, ingestion (!) - and then the trip itself. Maria makes a charismatic and sympathetic protagonist.
Marston builds incredible tension . . human drama etched on Moreno's young, weary face
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
