We’re down with Filly Brown.
By AMARIS CASTILLO
You may remember the piece we did on Filly Brown, one of Sundance’s gems this year.
Directed by Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos (Edward James Olmos’ son), the film centers on a Los Angeles teen named Maria Jose “Majo” Tonorio who turns to the art of rap to cope and help her mother out of prison. Majo is played by Gina Rodriguez, a budding Puerto Rican actress who hails from Chicago.
