The urban Hip Hop drama Filly Brown premiered this year at the still ongoing Sundace Film Festival and has been received with fairly warm reviews, especially for the star turn of its relatively unknown lead Gina Rodriguez (Our Family Wedding), a performance that THR calls "magnetic" and a "dynamic breakout". Filly Brown, about a Latina rapper struggling with family troubles and aspiring to make it in the music industry, is written by Youssef Delara and directed by Delara and Michael D. Olmos. The film also stars Jenni Rivera, Lou Diamond Phillips and Edward James Olmos.
