Richard Propes at The Independent Critic just reviewed Illegal (formerly Ilegales) quite favorably. A few choice quotes:
"The film...feels...like the award-winning Traffic in the way that it permeates the lives of its characters rather than simply making a political statement...Illegal is the kind of film that makes you think and it's the kind of film that will have audiences talking after watching it...[the] one thing that I appreciated the most about the film it's that it took its fundamental question of "What lines would you cross for a better life?" and made it accessible and thought-provoking for American audiences."If you haven't yet seen the film, you can pick up a copy at Amazon. See the trailer below.

Illegal, our feature film formerly known as Ilegales, is now on Amazon.com available for purchase on Amazon. We are very excited that another of our features is now widely available to consumers. "In Juarez, a Mexican day laborer chooses to help his childhood friend traffic illegal migrant workers across the border despite his wife’s fears. A young mother, after waiting 7 years to cross legally, flees Juarez in a desperate attempt to get her son the medical treatment he needs in America. In New Mexico, an illegal immigrant waiting for naturalization sells drugs to pay the bills for his American born children. Their paths collide when a low level Mexican gangster tries to work up the ladder to gain favor with the “Don” of Juarez, risking their lives as he traffics people and drugs across the border." Ilegales Review on Jezebel, Jenna Sauers at Jezebel, calls Illegal: "a stunning indie film
