A Cuban family is trying to adjust to a new life in Miami in this so-so film featuring an excellent cast. Alfred Molina has finally managed to make it over to America from Cuba to join his already established wife (Anjelica Huston), but are they still the happy couple they once were? Hard to know considering that Huston is developing a deep romance with a policeman (Chazz Palminteri) and Molina is drawn to sexy Marisa Tomei. These characters have lots of potential but they’re not really explored enough to make the film memorable, nor is the story ever particularly interesting.
