More Info:
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Berry isn't afraid to use melodrama as a tool to highlight injustice. It's his very un-flashiness that makes Frontera effective.

    Peña is a standout, and Longoria is a revelation as the vulnerable, pregnant Paulina. Hers is a decidedly un-glamorous part and Longoria compellingly fleshes out an under-written role.

  • Christy Lemire

    A well-cast, well-made, well-acted drama that you will probably forget about soon after you’ve seen it. Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Michael Berry’s Frontera offers an unsparing look at the plight of illegal immigrants, even if the ending seems too patly convenient.

    New York Post Full Review
  • David Lee Dallas

    By turns abrasive and stately, sermonic and impartial, plot-heavy and meandering, often within seconds of each other.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    In trying to create a balanced portrait of the conflicts and the ordinary people affected by them, director Michael Berry, who co-wrote the screenplay with Luis Moulinet III, chips away at the authenticity and intensity that an issue-driven film like this sorely needs.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The modern, gritty Western Frontera takes a lot of the clichés and delicately upends them to tell a tale about undocumented immigrants.

  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The intentions are solid here, but the execution is not... But the actors are compelling, and the issue is, of course, always worth discussion. It's not a great movie, but, if nothing else, Frontera is worthwhile on those fronts.

  • Keith Uhlich

    Ed Harris is a performer made for Westerns, and he’s perfectly utilized in debuting director Michael Berry’s middling if still very watchable modern-day oater as Roy.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    At once understated and slightly pulpy, the film comes down squarely on the side of compassion. It’s no polemic, but neither is it as character-driven as it aims to be.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew Lapin

    Before the hokey third act, there’s much to like about Michael Berry’s border-crossing drama Frontera.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Frontera settles into a shallow, unconvincing drama with two heroes.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The complexities of those people are diluted in a movie that’s not quite a functional ensemble but not intimate enough to qualify as a character study.
