The Story of Jose Hernandez is compelling and inspiring. The story, as told in the film A Million Miles Away is worthy of every minute of your time.
A Million Miles Away, Written and Directed by Alejandra Márquez Abella, avoids being sappy and trite. It is a film that feels earnest and honest.
However, A Million Miles Away could have easily pushed aspects of the storyline in order to make the viewing experience even richer and more rewarding. It feels as if Alejandra Márquez Abella (or someone in a decision making capacity) decided to play things somewhat on the safe side.
A Million Miles Away is enjoyable because virtually all of its Actors connect with each other for the entire 121 minute run time.
