Go for Sisters Reviews:

I saw this movie at the Ghent (Belgium) movie festival 2013, where it was part of the section American Independent. The persons in this movie are certainly not the cross section of society, but every of them has recognizable details somewhere hidden inside. Main characters are the tough "no bullshit" parole officer Bernice on one hand, and her old-times schoolfriend who tries to stay clean Fontayne on the another hand, They meet every another again after 20 years on various sides of the law. These two roles are set out perfectly in the opening scenes of the film, and this is precisely what characterizes the rest of the film. The folks we meet after Bernice and Fontayne squad up to look for Bernice's son, are portrayed very well within one or two scenes when they enter the proceedings. It gives us ample time to identify ourselves with them, though neither looks like someone we wish to be in true life. All have their issues plus a shady past, which is what makes them to what they are now, at the same time precisely what makes them fit in the storyline as it unfolds before our eyes.A third main hero is former policeman "The Terminator" Freddy, disgraced and fired without pension, but pulling his weight in this quest, in spite of his severely diminished eye sight. Every of the three "mates" brings their own special details and qualities, and their unique knowledge how things work on either side of the law. The odd trio undertakes a quest which seems a lost cause from the outset. Nevertheless, they definitely create progress throughout the entire film, be it one step at a time, be it improbable how they succeed in risky situations. But still, we see how the storyline develops from very close by. We also see how it brings our main characters in cases they should not have survived without variety of luck, lack of fear and sheer determination. These cases combined with the persons they have to deal with, are precisely what makes this into a colourful and varied movie, in which we even see a several parts of Mexico.All in all, I enjoyed this movie throughout its 123 mins running time. The three main characters are portrayed very well, every with their own unique details and abilities. And the folks they meet, albeit in relatively short encounters, look like taken from true life, allowing us peeping into their ways-of-life as a bonus. It offers no solutions for real-life problems, it is mere entertainment, no more no less. Humor works effectively as icing on the cake. I should search no notification about the budget, but it does not present either way.


SPOILER ALERT The movie opens with Bernice encountering a parolee with a plausible storyline to explain why she was consorting with criminals. Bernice doesn't purchase the story, and sends her to a hearing, commenting "I listen to folks sugarcoat their bullshit all day." Next, Bernice's former high school mate - Fontayne - shows up. Bernice says her she has to assign her to other agent, but listens to Fontayne's story. While she suspects Fontayne's storyline may be BS, she decides to give her a break. Fontayne offers to support her out if she needs anything in the future, but Bernice looks at her dismissively.Later, the scenes slash to every girl at her home. Their modest apartments are shot in warm sepia and amber tones, but a picture is painted of two lonely women.Bernice learns that Rodney is suspected of being involved in human trafficking from Mexico. Though her son has been alienated from her since he returned from the Middle East, Bernice simply wants to search him and hold him safe; one of his partners in crime, Fuzzy, has just been found murdered. Bernice has to turn to Fontayne to start investigating the globe of criminals from the inside.Entwined within the storyline is Sayles' critical eye on injustice and poverty. This spirit infuses most of Sayles' movies and his writings. An indie director, Sayles is greatest known for, I suspect, "The Brother from Other Planet" (1984) "Matewan" (1987)(one of my favorites), "Passion Fish" (1992, other female buddy movie of sorts), and "Lone Star" (1996). He is also a prolific writer, my two favorites being "Union Dues" and "A Moment in the Sun." Fontayne agrees to support search Rodney. These girls start to switch roles, if you will. Bernice bends the law in order to search her kidnapped son. Meanwhile, Fontayne is appalled that Bernice is moving her back into the globe of drug dealer and thugs. She is struggling to do the right thing. Bernice tries to assure her: "I will receive you out of this clean. I promise." Freddy, meanwhile, weathered and burdened with macular degeneration, wants to feel important. Retirement has not served him well, though he seems to have a loving wife who is worried about his journey. He is Bernice's and Fontayne's entry to Tijuana, where the trio encounters an odd assortment of thugs, murderers, traffickers, and another dangers, all while searching for Rodney.This rich hero study takes zone in settings that brim with authenticity. The NA meeting rings real as folks share their stories, as does the adventure to Tijuana, capturing the colors, sounds, and rhythm of this border town. The scenes in the desert highlight the barren but pretty nature of that locale.A glance at those who pay to cross the border under dangerous and even deadly conditions is done with empathy, not judgment. Tiny roles by Harold Perrineau as Wiley, Isaiah Washington as Vernell, and Hector Elizondo as Jorge, add to the richness of the characters in this film.In the end, as Bernice, Fontayne, and Freddy return to their lives in Southern California, there is a bit of hope. Bernice remarks to Fontayne, "I don't have that many friends," and they create plans for the evening.


Currently, "Go For Sisters" has a surprisingly weak overall rating of 6.1 on the Internet Film Info (IMDb). While this sounds respectable, a 6.1 would generally indicate that the movie is average at best*--and this movie is far from average in each way. To me, it's a unbelievable example of a film that details really, really exceptional acting coming from some less than popular faces--faces that deserve to be getting more attention."Go For Sisters" is a movie written and directed by John Sayles--a popular name in Hollywood. It's unusual because one of its producers is Leonard James Olmos (of "Miami Vice" fame)--who also is one of the stars of the film. He did a unbelievable job in the film, however, I would hate for him to receive all the glory. After all, LisaGay Hamilton and Yolanda Ross (hardly household names) were unbelievable as the two female leads and I would LOVE to see more of them in the future. Sure, they may not look and sound like Hollywood's concept of stars, but they really did nice jobs--particularly Hamilton. I love seeing 'real women' in films--women who are not the usual cookie cutter starlets but who seem like REAL people! And Hamilton and Ross sure seemed real.The movie starts in a parole office. Bernice (Hamilton) is a parole officer who seems to know her items and is all business with her clients. However, her fresh assignment is a tough one--Fontayne (Ross) turns out to be someone Bernice grew up with and knew very well long ago. Now, years later, they are on the opposite sides of the fence. And, because it would not be appropriate to have an old acquaintance as a client, Bernice plans on transferring Fontayne to other officer. However, something comes up and Bernice decides, for once, to go vs her better judgment. This is because her estranged son has just disappeared and she needs answers--especially since he might be dead or wanted for murder! She MUST know where he might be and what happened to him. And so she asks Fontayne for some help. After all, Fontayne's been around and might know some folks who might know some people... Well, after a while, the two spend more time together and naturally become closer and begin to talk about old times. And, it turns out that they were more than just casual acquaintances and actually Fontayne seems like she's willing to support not just because Bernice is a parole officer but because perhaps she cares and is trying to place her life as a junkie behind her...perhaps.At this point, Bernice is definitely treading into risky zone working with a friend/parolee to locate her son. However, the trail gets even murkier more convoluted when the girls later search themselves in contact with an ex-cop (Olmos). This is a guy who was thrown off the force and they don't know whether or not they can believe him--but they don't seem to have much choice if they wish to search the missing man. And, to create things worse, the trail later heads out of the country--to the infamous town of Tijuana, Mexico--a zone where law and order have all but vanished. What will happen next? And, most importantly, will Bernice and Yolanda come out of all this alive? And, just how far is Bernice willing to go to locate her son?I noticed that a several people felt that the script was a bit far-fetched when they reviewed the movie on IMDb. Perhaps it is a bit, but I found myself willing to trust it for few nice reasons. As a retired social worker and psychotherapist (as well as school teacher), I used to work very closely with parole and probation officers. They are VERY human--some very professional, some very unprofessional and some a bit crazy! So, an officer bending guidelines is something I should easy believe. Also, as a parent, I should see a afraid mother willing to risk everything to search her only son. But, most importantly, I should trust it because Bernice was such a believable character. Sayles did a great job of writing the hero and directing Hamilton--but Hamilton herself was just terrific in this leading role. While she has quite a several credits to her name, with acting like this, she deserves much more attention and opportunities. It also didn't harm having Ross and Olmos helping her--as the trio seemed very believable and the three really knew their craft. The bottom line is that too several movie emphasize what I like in films-- nice acting and well-written and believable characters. While this movie doesn't have a fancy unique results or the glitz of many Hollywood films, it is well made and quite tense. It's a movie I strongly recommend--even if the storyline might sound a bit difficult to believe. I sure believed it and am thrilled that the movie just came out this week with Netflix. Grab a copy.*IMDB scores are weighted a bit high--so I've noticed that a 6.1 is equal to about a 5.0 on many another scales.
