Storyline Heading
Majo Tonorio, aka, "Filly Brown" is a young raw hip-hop artist from Los Angeles who spits rhymes from the heart. With a mother in prison and a father struggling to provide for his daughters, Majo knows that a record contract could be her family's ticket out. But when a record producer offers her a shot at stardom, she is suddenly faced with the prospect of losing who she is as an artist, as well as the friends who helped her reach the cusp of success.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is an independent, music-themed drama aimed at the young Latino and urban markets. There are some familiar faces here such as Lou Diamond Phillips, Edward James Olmos, and the late singer Jenni Rivera, but this is carried by the more unknown actors. Constant language as well as violence and drug use make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Above Average The film strives to be inspiring in its chronicle of Majo Tonorio, aka Filly Brown (Rodriguez), an aspiring Los Angeles hip-hop artist. Rodriguez is engaging, smoothly blending a street-wise quality with a vulnerable aura. A nimble rapper, she's more convincing than many of the cast members. Unfortunately, the film is marred by a story, situations and stereotypical characters that strike all-too-familiar chords.
