The unexpected death of Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera was a shock to many, but now her first film debut has a chance to be seen posthumously. Filly Brown tells the story of a young woman who has a natural talent for hip hop and quickly burgeons into a young star despite her mother (Rivera) being incarcerated and her family barely making ends meet. When a big-time recording exec discovers her, Filly Brown has some tough choices to make. The film opened to positive reviews at last year's Sundance Film Festival.
Filly Brown will be released in the Spring of 2013.
