- Crossing Over review by CP Customer
Crossing Over is a compelling multi-layered drama that focuses on several characters each from different backgrounds and countries that are illegal citizens in America. Some are trying to obtain status through normal channels or by other means, while others are just trying to provide for their family. A refreshing aspect is that it not only takes in Mexicans but also Australians, Chinese, British and Iranian families providing it with much diversity which Kramer takes advantage of. The film is a real surprise, Ford is the most noticeable name in the cast but he only features in the main thread and even then Cliff Curtis overshadows him. If you enjoyed the complex Crash or similar films, then Crossing Over is recommended.
