Raising Victor Vargas

2002 R

Victor (Victor Rasuk) is a Latino kid who fancies himself as a bit of a lothario around the ghetto. But when word gets out that he's been romancing a fat girl in the apartment upstairs, his credibility as a stud is thrown into question. To shut everyone up, he finds himself a hot new girlfriend, Judy (Judy Marte), the tough neighborhood beauty. Peter Sollett directs this indie hit, which was a favorite at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.
