Ed Harris & Michael Pena Star in Modern Western 'Frontera' Trailer
In what seems to be a timely sort of drama, Frontera takes an interesting story of mistaken murder and mixes it up with the hot topic of immigration in the United States. As two Mexican men (including Michael Pena) are crossing the border illegally, an unseen shooter looking to take them out mistakenly kills the wife of an Arizona sheiff (Ed Harris). What follows is a passionate quest for answers as the immigrant is wrongfully accused of murder, leaving his wife (Eva Longoria) in turmoil. This sounds like a harrowing story, and certainly an original plot for a drama with Pena and Harris giving strong performances. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Michael Berry's Frontera from Magnolia Pictures:
Frontera is directed by Michael Berry (Mira), who co-wrote the script with newcomer Louis Moulinet. After a former Arizona Sheriff's wife (Amy Madigan) is killed while riding on their Ranch property, it would appear a Mexican man (Michael Pena) crossing in to the US illegally is at fault. As former Sheriff (Ed Harris) and current Sheriff (Aden Young) search for answers, lives are changed forever and the facts as to who is really at fault in this tragedy are nearly as tenuous and complex as the issues and tensions between the people. Magnolia Pictures releases the film on VOD July 31st and theaters on September 5th.

Funny and weird comments. Look, this seems like a really intelligent and interesting film about real problems in the real world involving real people. There will be no super hero comic book guys flying out of the sky to solve the problem. This is not escapist entertainment, but what looks like an incisive look at the immigration problems in this country, racism, and political malfunction. Also, there really is no better actor around these days than Ed Harris. So, obviously this film will not be for everyone or for the masses. Greater the pity, but that's the way it is in cinema today. I will be seeing this, that's for sure and hope for the best. At least they're trying to make something of worth so my hat's off to them.
