Spanglish movie review

This is a gutsy movie because most of the point of view is given from a non-mainstream character, the Mexican domestic, played by Paz Vega.  Also, the movie takes a peek into this "rich world," true or false.

Vega's character stays constant throughout.  In the beginning, when she and her daughter go out to dinner and two men at the bar buy her a drink, she tells the waitress to tell the men something like, “Can’t you see I’m with my daughter?”  In the end, after an evening with Adam Sandler’s character, she remains true to her character, and when she walks to Sandler’s home the next day, there is a sense of honor and pride.  The last scene confirms how she would very much like it if her daughter were like her—this statement underlines how she has behaved in the “weak” moments of the movie.   Unlike Sandler’s beautiful wife, who has caved-in to the weak moments and goes joyriding with convertible-driving men.

While Vega is strong by being able to be in control of herself, the wife is stronger in other things societal as shown in the jogging-up-the-hill race scene and in the wife’s kidnapping of Vega's daughter who gets a new hairdo and a new private school.  The wife has prestige and money at her disposal.  Vega's character has her values.

What makes this movie worth seeing is that the main characters play their parts very well.

The movie ends with latter scenes of Sandler and his daughter and Vega with her daughter.

Remember the movie, Punch Drunk Love?  Sandler convinces you that because of his love for this woman, he can literally do anything!

In the end of Spanglish, you become convinced that Vega's character does live her life as a good example for her daughter.
