AUGUST EVENING is a good independent film about Mexican-Americans. It's a family drama, with some extremely well written scenes and some very good acting. However, the writing is very inconsistent, and the pacing is truly awful, particularly in the first half. A good editor could have made this good movie into an excellent one. However, it's still worth watching, and it's nice to see a slice of American life that is rarely shown in American cinema.
