Piedras Verdes (Green Stones)

From deep in the heart of Mexico comes this edgy, compelling cinematic journey of discovery. Escaping her stifling upper-class family, a young Mexican girl flees to the big city where she stumbles into a life of sex and drugs. Choosing to escape from this life as well, she hooks up with a kindly young artist and finally treks off to the wilds of Mexico's desert regions in search of her birth parents. More a rumination on destiny and fate than a conventional cinema narrative, this earthy film melds bits of coming-of-age story, gritty urban drama and Magical Realism. In Spanish with English subtitles. 88 minutes
