A Day without a Mexican

Does anyone else remember the movie “A Day without a Mexican?” It came out almost 10 years ago, and on the surface, it was all about ethnicity and class. In the movie, the entire Mexican population (except for a news anchor) vanishes from the state of California. Naturally, the movie examines what happens to the state’s economy with so many workers missing. But, the plot also focuses on the news anchor as she wonders why she was spared. The answer explores questions about what makes a family and how we develop our own identities. If you haven’t seen the movie, it’s worth watching.
