If you watched and enjoyed the (critically-acclaimed) film `Crash,' about many intertwining stories which were connected by accounts of race in modern America, then you may like to watch `Crossing Over.' It's basically the same film, but, instead on focusing on racial divisions in the country, it concentrates on those who illegally come to America for various reasons (and naturally their attempts to stay).
Some say Crossing Over is a little too similar to Crash to be truly great. They may have a (small) point. It does feel a little samey, however, baring in mind that Crossing Over also boasts an impressive cast list, I didn't find the similarities to be a problem.
You have about five or six stories in Crossing Over - some intertwine, others stand alone. However, they're all about the different reasons people come to America (and the Government's attitude to them). Some stories are more entertaining than others, but that was the same way with Crash.
Harrison Ford is naturally the `stand-out character' who the film is sold on and, as always, he plays his part of gruff immigration police officer to perfection. If you're into some heavy drama which doesn't really pull any punches or attempt to sugarcoat the subject matter, then you may want to give this a go. Don't let the similarities to Crash put you off.
