Official Trailer for Kaitlin McLaughlin's Indie Thriller 'Hostile Border'
"Are you, or aren't you a criminal? There is no in between." Samuel Goldwyn Films has released a trailer for the indie thriller Hostile Border, co-directed by Michael Dwyer & Kaitlin McLaughlin. Veronica Sixtos stars as Pocha, a crafty undocumented immigrant living in the US who is sent back to Mexico, but struggles to cope on the other side of the border. The full cast includes Roberto Urbina, Julio Cedillo, Jorge A. Jimenez, Jesse Garcia and Maria del Carmen Farias. This film was originally titled Pocha: Manifest Destiny at the Los Angeles Film Festival before being renamed to Hostile Border, described as a slow burning crime thriller mixed with a western. This actually looks better than you're probably expecting.
Here's the official trailer for Michael Dwyer & Kaitlin McLaughlin's Hostile Border, in high def on Apple:
Raised in the U.S., Claudia (22) is an undocumented immigrant living beyond her means in a twisted version of the American dream. When she’s arrested by the FBI for credit card fraud, Claudia is quickly deported to México. Speaking no Spanish and lost in her foreign “homeland,” she reluctantly takes refuge at her estranged father's cattle ranch. As she clashes with her unyielding father, her attempts to return home to the U.S. thrust her into a dangerous bond with a foreign smuggler, Ricky. Caught between her father’s sermons, Ricky's promises, and the encroaching military, Claudia must navigate a tightrope of impossible choices. Hostile Border is co-directed by Michael Dwyer & Kaitlin McLaughlin, from a script by Kaitlin McLaughlin. Samuel Goldwyn will release Hostile Border in theaters + on VOD starting April 15th.
What choice do people have when they have no choice? This is how this looks like. But, then again, I won't pretend I understand that dilemma since I am too far from this and don't understand all the perspectives that are part of it. However, it does looks interesting and engaging.

This looks fine. Films like this ride that all too comfortable line of forgetfulness.
