La Mission

Peter Bratt writes and directs, younger bro Benjamin Bratt produces and stars. Rather than a typical Hollywood vanity project, however, the Bratt boys have created a vivid indie drama. Set in San Francisco's heavily Hispanic Mission District, the film introduces us to ex-con-gone-good Che Rivera (Benjamin Bratt, proving he's got some grit behind his pretty-boy looks). Che has managed to put his O.G. lifestyle behind him to raise a smart, teenage son (Santa Fe actor Jeremy Ray Valdez). Unfortunately, the bond between father and son becomes strained when dad learns that sonny boy is secretly gay. To put it mildly, dad doesn't react well. The film borders on melodrama, but gets all the details right. With its observant look at Hispanic culture and community and its important theme of sexuality in traditional ethnic families, La Mission is worth a visit. 117 minutes R.
