is a great love story with intense emotion and a healthy dose of
humor. Jaime Gomez and Seidy Lopez create heat on the screen while
they deal with real human emotions. Gomez plays a tough but sensitive
leading man. Seidy plays a softer, more sensitive role than usual
and is breathtaking as Gabriela. Lupe Ontoveros was a joy to watch
as Gabriela's frantic grandmother. Troy Winbush is very funny as
the womanizing best friend. Lemont Bently shines as a mental patient.
Gabriela has screened
to packed theaters at a number of college campuses, including most
recently at Cal State Northridge, at a fundraiser for earthquake
victims in El Salvador.
