I never knew much about Selena, but she seemed like such a beautiful person - kind of reminded me of Aaliyah a little bit because of her sweet nature. Jeniffer Lopez definitly did Selena justice in this film, and she looked so beautiful!!

A very good performance by Jennifer Lopez, and faithful to the life of the original star Selena Quintanilla which we will continue to miss....

This film has everything a good film should have - it inspires and hits every emotion. Jennifer Lopez is fantastic and shows that she has the ability to really connect with the character she is playing.
This film is great, with absolutely fantastic music (buy selena's album if you can!) and her journey to stardom is nothing short of inspirational.
The ending is sad (and weepy), but perhaps the saddest thing about it is that it is a true story.
Utterly fantastic, brilliantly acted and the soundtrack is unbelieveable.

Words cannot describe how I felt at the end of this movie. Before watching it I had not heard about Selena or her style of music, after the movie I wanted to know everything about her and hear all of her music. It'll make you laugh, cry and sing but it will also give you the opportunity to have insight into one of the most amazing singers of the 20th Century. In 1995 Selena was taken from us tragically but her spirit still live on in this wonderful film. Jennifer Lopez shines as the lead, moreso than she does in her later movies. Its an uplifting story of a woman who was achieving her dreams until she was taken away from us... have the tissues handy.

This 1997 film, well directed by Gregory Nava, was the film that propelled Jennifer Lopez on to stardom. She is nothing short of sensational in this film. She is Selena!
The film recounts the brief life of Selena Quintanilla Perez (Jennifer Lopez), a life that was built around her father's broken dreams. Her father (Edward James Olmos) had himself had a band in his youth called "Los Dinos". Now a married man with children, his dreams have stalled along the wayside. When he realizes, however, that his young daughter has some musical talent, he builds a band around her, "Selena and Los Dinos", and begins living vicariously through her.
Under the watchful eye of her martinet father, years of forced, musical practices and life on the road follow. Loving, possessive, and controlling, he succeeds in almost losing her, when she marries her guitarist without her father's permission. They reconcile, however, and he places Selena on the path to stardom, a tejano sensation on the cusp of becoming a crossover musical star. Unfortunately, her path crosses that of a fan, Yolanda Saldivar, whom Selena befriends, only to have her be the one who cuts her down in her prime.
Jennifer Lopez is sensational as Selena, big booty and all. She charms. She beguiles. She entertains. She is every inch the star. This has been her best role, and her performance is stellar. She should have won an award for her performance, because she most certainly deserved one for her portrayal of Selena. It is unfortunate that her acting career has been downhill ever since.
Edward James Olmos is perfect as Abraham Quintanilla, the father who pushed his daughter to heights that he had dreamed for himself but had been unable to reach. His performance is powerful and rich. He, too, should have had his award caliber performance acknowledged in some way, as it was close to perfect. Mr. Olmos is a wonderful actor who deserves more recognition than he has gotten, thus far.
All in all, this is an interesting, absorbing film with some great music. No wonder Selena was a hit!
