Raised in the U.S., Claudia (22) is an undocumented immigrant living beyond her means in a twisted version of the American dream. When she’s arrested by the FBI for credit card fraud, Claudia is quickly deported to México. Speaking no Spanish and lost in her foreign “homeland,” she reluctantly takes refuge at her estranged father's cattle ranch. As she clashes with her unyielding father, her attempts to return home to the U.S. thrust her into a dangerous bond with a foreign smuggler, Ricky. Caught between her father’s sermons, Ricky's promises, and the encroaching military, Claudia must navigate a tightrope of impossible choices. Both a slow burning crime thriller and western, Hostile Border follows the transformative journey of a young woman confronting the high price of American ideals in the dark places between two cultures.

    There is a reason why you never heard of this movie or any of the actors. The 5 star, must see reviews are the only reason I watched, and it was a boring mess of a film with a dark end. A shovel to the head in the last 5 minutes can't save an hour of drivel. Nothing here worth watching.
  • You Must See this Film!!!

    This movie is about a young lady who gets deported to her fathers homeland. This movie is very entertaining. I would highly recommend seeing this movie because it is very appropriate for all mature audiences.

    I don’t want to give anything away but Hostile Border is a shovel full of tense thriller action! I saw it twice and I enjoyed it even more on a second viewing.

    This movie was amazing! Beautifully shot and very well written: every word, every pause, every musical note and every shot/angle of the camera contributed to the deliberate and measured intense build up of this dramatic story. The actors performances were all remarkable and the leading role played by a relatively unknown actress was truly commanding. I definitely recommend it as a must see!
  • Great Film

    Saw this movie last year at the LA Film Festival and throughly enjoyed the writing, cinematography and acting from the cast. Great story about a woman caught between the life she thought she wanted, and the culture/family drawing her in.
