Gina Rodriguez in Filly Brown
A grand total of, like, two people have seen this movie, produced by Edward James Olmos’ sons and starring the actor, but it’s one of the most buzzed-about flicks slated for the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. At the center of the chatter is part-Puerto Rican newcomer Gina Rodriguez, who plays a street-toughened rapper named Majo, whose struggling family includes an incarcerated mother, and who has a chance at stardom but may lose herself in the process. We predict Michelle Rodriguez-like breakout stardom.
Premieres: Jan. 20
