Under the Same Moon (aka La Misma luna) 2007 106 PG-13 3.5 out of 5 ducks
Rosario has been working in Los Angeles for the past four years at two jobs, supporting her now 9-year-old son Carlitos, who's still living in Mexico with his grandmother. She sends money each month, and calls him from the same phone booth every Sunday morning at 10am. After grandma passes away in her sleep on Tuesday, Carlitos decides he's going to L.A. to be with his mom. The family acquaintance who smuggles people across the border won't help (Rosario made her promise not to help smuggle the boy over), he finds an American couple, and hides in their car... they cross the border, but the car is impounded due to parking tickets. This starts Carlitos adventure fraught with challenges, but he bumps into a sympathetic Enrique, who helps him along the way, and when the boy gives up dad's living in Tucson, AZ (and his name), Enrique helps him arrange a meeting. Dad promises to drive him to L.A., but stands the boy up, and Enrique escorts Carlitos to Los Angeles on the bus. There, they wander through town looking for the phone booth near the laundromat, a wall mural, a Domino's Pizza, without success. After sleeping on a park bench, the cops hassle Carlitos as Enrique returns with breakfast; Enrique throws coffee on the cops and is arrested to give Carlitos a chance to escape. The boy runs, and when he stops, finds himself at the intersection with the phone booth, and mom is there. They see each other, separated by a red traffic light, and the film ends when the pedestrian signal goes from don't walk to walk (so they can now be reunited). Moving film reel
