Starring Eva Mendez, Cierra Ramirez, Eugenio Derbez, Raini Rodriguez, and Directed By Patricia Riggen, Girl In Progress Is The Perfect Movie For Mother’s Day
Grace (Eva Mendes) is a single mom, too preoccupied with “paying the bills” and herself to notice that her teenage daughter, Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez) is in desperate need of her attention. When Ansiedad’s English teacher, Ms. Armstrong (Patricia Arquette), introduces her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad decides to jump start her own coming of age and all the pain associated with it, as a shortcut to “adulthood” and more importantly a life without her mom. As her misguided plan unravels, in some comedic yet poignant series of events, both Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your own age.
Recently judged “Family-Approved” (ages 12+) by the prestigious International Dove Foundation, the film has already been attracting the attention and support of churches and organizations across the country including Life Teen and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC).
“The message is bound to impact thousands of lives and bring a life altering revelation, which will transform the homes of Hispanic families across the nation,” says the NHCLC.
