A dusty Arizona bordertown-set seriocomedy that slowly ingratiates with its warmth and humor. Very, very slowly. Indeed, while there are rewards to sticking with this tempest-in-teapot saga of sexual awakening across three family generations of Mexican-American women, its pacing is leisurely to the brink of stasis.
