Love For Rent (DVD)

LOVE FOR RENT tells the story of Colombian immigrant and law student, Sofia (Angie Cepeda) who feels her controlled life slipping away after her vengeful husband, whom she married to obtain her Green Card, steals her belongings and threatens to file for divorce, which would result in her deportation back to Colombia. In debt and striving to take care of herself, Sofia agrees to rent her body and her soul for $50,000 to become a surrogate mother to Frank and Helen Bauman (Jim Piddock, Nora Dunn), a wealthy and eccentric couple unable to have a baby of their own. Throughout the ordeal, the life that Sofia has come to know starts to fall apart as her heart, will and determination are tested more than ever.

*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 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.

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.
