'La Mission'


A solid casts boosts writer-director Peter Bratt's drama about a secret that threatens to tear a family apart. "Law & Order" and "The Cleaner" alumnus Benjamin Bratt (Peter's brother) plays an ex-convict who takes great pride in his macho image.

That creates a problem when his son (Jeremy Ray Valdez) reveals a lifestyle his father never suspected he was leading. Considerable emotional strife results. Talisa Soto (alias Mrs. Benjamin Bratt) and "Fame" alumnus Jesse Borrego also appear. *** (R: AS, P, V)
