Remember the name Gina Rodriguez. You might be praising it later.
Filly Brown — A Mexican girl rises through the ranks of hip-hop while struggling with family issues, including the imprisonment of her mother. “It’s an L.A. story with a really good performance by Gina Rodriguez, who’s in almost every frame of this movie,” Cooper says. “She’s a girl with ambition trying to break into the music business.” Cast: Gina Rodriguez, Lou Diamond Phillips, Jenni Rivera, Edward James Olmos.

Gina Rodriguez in Filly Brown
A grand total of, like, two people have seen this movie, produced by Edward James Olmos’ sons and starring the actor, but it’s one of the most buzzed-about flicks slated for the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. At the center of the chatter is part-Puerto Rican newcomer Gina Rodriguez, who plays a street-toughened rapper. We predict Michelle Rodriguez-like breakout stardom.
