There are so many drug movies/shows but most are either about those fighting the war ("Sicario," "Miami Vice") or those on the wrong side ("Narcos," "Blow"), but not many about the pawns in the drug game. "Maria Full of Grace" is about a teenage girl in Columbia who loses her job and signs on to be a drug mule. Catalina Sandino Moreno gives a commanding performance in the lead role. American Joshua Marston directs.

The movie was very well made. I did not like some of the choices the girl made but I can understand how she did not want to conform to her family's expectations. The movie was powerful and well acted.

Wonderful movie. Hard to watch sometimes as you witness a young women searching for who she wants to be in the world. Easy to see where she's uncomfortable with the same old way of life that everyone else just falls into. Her choices take her on a very scary and challenging journey. But she discovers her own strength and confidence to move into the next phase of young woman-hood. Slow moving at times but well done.
