Magnolia Pictures will release FRONTERA starring Michael Peña and Eva Longoria in their first Spanish speaking roles alongside Academy Award® nominees Ed Harris (Pollock) and Amy Madigan (Twice in a Lifetime) and directed and written by Michael Berry and co-written by Louis Moulinet.
Set along the tumultuous Arizona-Mexico border, FRONTERA, follows Miguel (Michael Peña), a hardworking father and devoted husband who crosses the border illegally and is wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Ed Harris). Miguel’s pregnant wife (Eva Longoria) lands in the hands of corrupt Mexican “Coyote” smugglers as she tries to help her husband, while the ex-lawman investigates his wife’s death and unearths evidence that could destroy one family’s future.
FRONTERA examines both sides of the complex issues of immigration and human trafficking that deeply affect both the U.S. and Mexico. It shows that a border might divide two countries, but can’t divide humanity, for good or bad, we are all part of the problem and the solution.
FRONTERA is currently on demand on Itunes since July 31, 2014 and will be released in select theaters on Friday, September 5, 2014.
