Miss Bala

1

A young woman clinging on to her dream of becoming a beauty queen in Mexico dominated by organized crime.

Pretty working class Tijuana girl Laura (newcomer Stephanie Sigman, superb) just wants to enter a beauty contest.

But the wrong place at the wrong time lands her in the thick of Mexico’s vicious drug wars, a helpless pawn of all the ruthless forces involved – official no less than criminal.

Gerardo Naranjo’s hard, fast, angry thriller (the title literally means ‘Miss Bullet’) depicts a world where violence and corruption have eaten so deep into society, it’s hard to imagine they could ever be eradicated.

A grim story – but with an energy and pace that grip and don’t let go.
