Love For Rent (DVD)

It is well acted and the story unfolds with its own steady logic, and a few surprises.
Harold A. Fretheim
I saw it on tv and kept trying to find it again but never could so I decided to try and buy it, it is that good.

I don't want to give away too much here, but this movie had an ending that flooded my eyes with tears.

*Love for Rent* (aka Amor en Alquiler) was a pleasant watch as it was different from others. Just when you thought that things couldn't go more wrong, it spirals abyssmally for Sofia.

Sofia is a Columbian who is residing in America and studying law. In order to do this, she had to illegally marry a man to get her green card. Her cousin, Monica, has done the same thing except that she wants to be a singer.

Being a unreasonable jerk, Sofia's husband has stolen all of her possession, including her school books, closed their accounts and has done everything else possible. Sofia cannot report him to the police because she risks deportation. To top it off, her neighbor's foster son finds her hidden apartment key and steals her donuts. It seems trivial but it was enough to send Sofia crying and screaming herself to sleep.

Monica and her husband take Sofia on a night out to get her mind off of her streak of bad luck. Afterwards, on their way home, they meet a well-off couple who has flagged them for their car troubles. However, miscommunication ensues and both are without a car. In the midst of this, the couple asks Sofia to be their surrogate for $50,000.

Nearing divorce with an inevitable loss of a green card and broke, Sofia agrees to be a surrogate. However, while surrogating, she meets a young handsome doctor, Neil. In addition, she bonds with the neighbor's foster kid, Max.

For a while, things go smoothly. However, things go wrong with Neil and with Max. To top it off, she goes into labor. Will love be able to withstand miscommunication or save someone?

I liked *Love for Rent* because it portrayed how Latinos worked themselves to the bone trying to stay in the land of opportunity and freedom.

This movie went unpublicized and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. It's amazing how well this woman handled the events in her life. I enjoyed the story and all of the characters. I watch it over and over when in need of a light-hearted feel-good movie.

Me parece buena, bastante romantica y sobre todo muestra un poco lo que sucede en la vida de un inmigrante que trata de salir adelante y como en los cuentos de hadas con un bonito final. Si me gusto.

This was an intelligent film that was also sad, funny and emotional. Angie Cepeda gives a very moving and sincere performance as Sofia, a Colombian immigrant who is going to college and trying to get her life together. By chance she meets a young doctor who is attracted to her. Soon, she realizes that she likes him too. At the same time she finds herself falling in love with her neighbor's young foster child, played by the irresistably adorable Max Burkholder. But much to her dismay both of these relationships start to fall apart because of factors beyond her control. She finds herself struggling just to get through each day. But somehow she finds the courage to keep going. She begins to wonder if things will ever work out for her. I don't want to give away too much here, but this movie had an ending that flooded my eyes with tears. In short, if you like meaningful romantic comedies with genuine emotion, then please, find this movie and watch it. And don't forget to have a box of tissues handy.

This is a beautiful story about love and survival. It is well acted and the story unfolds with its own steady logic, and a few surprises. This is a love story but not a comedy. It is not a tragedy either. For the price you could not possibly do better.
