Shot dead on March 31, 1995 at the age of 23, Selena Quintanilla was poised to become the first female singer to cross over from Spanish to English markets successfully. For a little girl from Corpus Christi, Texas, Selena's accomplishments were remarkable. She conquered the Spanish charts, had No. 1 hits, dominated Mexican-American pop music, won both acceptance in Mexico (despite shaky Spanish) and a Grammy. This biopic presents Selena as that rare popular girl who's not especially rich, cool, or perfect looking but is bubbly and warm and genuinely at ease. Nurtured by her family, Selena never pretended to be anything other than Mexican-American, which made her a cultural icon, while she continued to reach out to everyone. Her life was brutally cut short, but her example --working her way through obstacles with grace and grit --lives on.

This movie was released in March 2017, 2 years after Selena Quintanilla-Perez was killed.(March 31 1995).

Interesting movie dramatizing Selena's rise to fame, from early teen years.

Sad ending.

The movie stars Jennifer Lopez playing Selena.

heart warming story, great music, unbelievably great job by J Lo to match Selena's poise, style & emotions. Personally, one of my family's favourite. Pity the sad true ending.
