The amazing charisma and star power of Jennifer Lopez is on full display in her breakout role as the revered Tejano music superstar Selena in this joyous and powerful musical biopic. Closely shepherded by Selena’s family, this project was launched just weeks after her murder and yet the focus is fully on her career and coming of age as a performer not on the tragedy of her death. Packed with music and great performances from Lopez and Edward James Olmos as Selena’s father and manager Abraham, SELENA is definitely a film made for the big screen. Brattle debut!
