The Girl lets Cornish shine
The trailer for The Girl addresses two big issues, the first is that Abbie Cornish deserves challenging roles to show just how strong an actress she is, and the other is that of Mexican illegal immigrants.
The film, and particularly Cornish's performance, is getting quite a bit of praise while reviews are mixed about the film and the subject matter seems to be getting a little bit of criticism.
The Girl is written and directed by David Riker and starring along with Abbie Cornish are Will Patton, Giovanna Zacarías and Santiago Maritza as the young girl that her life soon intertwines with, and it's the young girl that has also been getting a lot of praise.
Here's the short blurb for the film:
A young Texan mother who loses her child to foster care begins smuggling Mexicans across the border.

Mixed reactions so far to the film, although there hasn't been a huge audience to see it as it has only been shown at a few film festivals in America so far, but with Cornish in it and the subject matter I'd be keen to give it a go.
