Don't Let Me Drown (USA)
Mexican American boy in tough Brooklyn neighborhood falls for Dominican girl. Set in the aftermath of 9/11 one has a parent working in the cleanup, the other lost a sister in the attack. Even so this is mostly a straightforward courtship film. It took me a while to get hooked, but by the second half I was definitely enjoying it. Worth catching, or at least adding to your Netflix queue. I don't think it'll lose much on a smaller screen.
