Movie Info

How far would you go to keep your family together? In Search of the American Dream is the story of five children and their adult brother as they desperately race across Texas for survival because their parents, undocumented for 30 years, were caught, arrested and thrown in jail in one fell swoop--deportation is only a matter of time. In Search of the American Dream tells the story of one family torn apart... and the fear and agony the children are forced to bear alone.

Critic Reviews for In Search Of The American Dream

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

This 142-minute film is overstuffed with storylines that go nowhere and characters who are little altered by their experiences.

Long before the overwrought ending arrives, "In Search of the American Dream" ... will send most viewers scrambling in search of the exits.
