From Academy Award®-winning producer Brian Grazer and Jason Blum comes a power drama set against the vibrant backdrop of East LA's iconic car culture. Danny (Gabriel Chavarria), a talented young street artist, is caught between the lowrider community inhabited by his old-school father (Demián Bichir) and stepmother (Eva Longoria) and following in the dangerous path of his ex-con brother (Theo Rossi). Danny must decide between his quest for self-expression or following his family's tradition in this highly original and superbly acted film.

Admirable but overwritten drama has violence, drinking.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lowriders is a drama about a Latino family living in East L.A. There's a scene with guns and shooting that leads to a flesh wound and some blood. Characters fight and argue, and a car is destroyed by baseball bats and acid. Expect frequent strong language, including a use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "p---y," and "bitch." Two main characters kiss and lie in bed together under the covers; they're presumably naked, but nothing sensitive is shown. Another major character is recovering from a drinking problem and is shown drunk in one scene. Characters are also briefly shown smoking pot, and there are references to drunkenness, as well as some objectification of women. Although the movie centers on a culture that's tragically underrepresented in film, it's ultimately too overwritten and simplistic to succeed.
