" Fugly " is a 2014 independent drama film that was directed by Alfredo De Villa. The movie co-stars John Leguizamo, Radha Mitchell, Rosie Perez, and a cast of other talented actors. The film follows four childhood friends: Adam (John Leguizamo), Manny (Johnathon Schaech), Anna (Radha Mitchell), and Keven (David Wilmot), who reunite after a long time apart. They all come from different backgrounds and different walks of life.

Adam is a successful entrepreneur who has it all, but still feels empty inside. Manny is a recovering drug addict who is trying to stay clean, but is tempted to relapse. Anna is a wife and mother who is unhappy with her life and marriage, and Keven is an ex-convict who is struggling to start over and leave his past behind.

Throughout the movie, we see the characters confront their issues head-on and try to come to terms with their past mistakes. The film addresses themes of redemption, friendship, and forgiveness.

One of the strongest aspects of the film is the exceptional performance of the cast. The chemistry between John Leguizamo and Radha Mitchell is palpable, and they truly embody the complexity and depth of their characters. Rosie Perez brings her unique brand of intensity to her role, and David Wilmot is equally captivating as Keven, the ex-convict.

The movie also shines a light on some of the societal issues that can plague individuals from marginalized communities. One character is dealing with mental illness, others with addiction, and yet others with the cycles of poverty and violence. The movie acknowledges the reality of these struggles and depicts them in a respectful and nuanced manner.

The pacing of the film is steady, and the cinematography is effective in conveying the gritty reality of the inner city. Director Alfredo De Villa expertly captures the vibe and energy of the Bronx, where the film takes place.

Overall, "Fugly" is a thought-provoking and engaging drama that doesn't shy away from difficult themes. The story of friendship, redemption, and forgiveness is heartwarming, and the performances of the entire cast make this film one that should not be missed.
