  Library Journal Review

Desperate to escape the slums of Havana, three teens-Elio; his twin sister, Lila; and friend Raul-scrape together the materials for a crude raft to make the 90-mile journey to Miami. Based on a real event, Lucy Mulloy's feature-film debut gets the most from its nonprofessional performers, the energized direction making palpable their anxious characters' plight. An opening credit "Spike Lee presents" offers the veteran director's stamp of approval. While lending realism, a few brief sex scenes are a bit raw-the only proviso here. (c) Copyright 2014.
