Film: La Mission



We watched this movie this weekend.  Dr. J went to sleep before it was over but it is well worth watching if you think Benjamin Bratt is hot.
There is a lot of this to see in the film:
This film is written by Benjamin Bratt and his brother Peter who grew up in this eclectic and colorful area of San Fransisco.  I think whether you are familiar with the area or not the scenes that give glimpses into the neighbourhood are interesting to watch.
In light of all the media coverage over gay teen bullying I also think this film is relevant.


Have you seen this film?
Do you like the eye candy?

Okay so I am embarrassed and a little appalled that I haven't seen this yet, since I live in the Bay Area and teach high school in the outer Mission, just 5 minutes away from where this film takes place! Not to mention, I teach about some of the social issues the film raises . . . I am so eager to see it, and need to get on it QUICK. Not to mention, B-Bratt = HOTT.

This movie looks interesting but I'm not in the Bratt pack. He's so not my type. I'll give this movie a go though for sure.

Haven't seen the movie yet - our local video shop closed down, feel a bit bereft and culturally deprived! - but eye candy always appreciated :)

This also seems like a perfect movie to watch with my husband, so he can get a taste of his new home-ish!

I haven't seen the film and by the glimpse of your sneak peek, i'll bee seeing a bit more of Benjamin than i've seen in his prior films(grinning from ear to ear). Yes, i think he's a hottie.

I would love to put this on my list of movies to be see but that would be futile. The only movies we watch around here these days are G or at the very least animated... somethings gotta change.

I'm putting it on my netflix list. I love your movie choices. I and the kids are such movie hounds. Thanks for the tip.

I am lucky enough to say I am "related" to the Bratt Brothers, through marriage (my sister's husband is cousins with them). They are really great guys and deserve all the praise they get!

It was fun when Benjamin was dating Julia Roberts. We realized if they got married we would be "related" to her!! :)

Maybe You'll Enjoy These Too...
