For Lisette, every day has become Independence Day.
Director Darnell Martin's acclaimed debut film stars Lauren Velez, Jon Seda, Rita Moreno and Griffin Dunne as members of a battling Bronx family filled with love, passion and real-life choices. When her well-meaning husband is arrested, a young mother, Lisette, finds herself unprepared to support the family. Fast-talking her way into a job with a record producer (Dunne), Lisette quickly discovers her own hidden talents. But the boys in the neighborhood report back to Chino that Lisette is "dating" her bigwig boss, leading to a major confrontation that changes their life together.
A complex comedy filled with laughter and tears, I Like It Like That is a "splashy, big-hearted, multicultural crowd pleaser [that] has something for everybody." - John Powers, Vogue Magazine
