Review by Lisa Payne
Angelfish is a culture chase romance. Brendan (Jimi Stanton) is from a broken family with an alcoholic, all around bad mother and a brother in constant trouble. Eva (Destiny Fresqueri) is from a traditional Puerto Rican family. All their hopes and dreams rest on her shoulders.
After Brendan asks Eva out, they fall in love really quickly. The flies on the ointment are Brendan’s horrible mother, Eva’s family expectations and Eva’s sorta boyfriend.
As they juggle their relationship and their individual responsibilities, the outside tension takes a toll on Brendan and Eva being together.
Angelfish is interesting, giving equal time to their respective situations. The performances are solid and the leads have great chemistry.
