From Pantelion Films and Lionsgate. FILLY BROWN is the inspiring portrait of a young woman striving to find her voice - without compromising herself or the fate of her family. Majo Tonorio, aka, Filly Brown, played by Gina Rodriguez, is a young aspiring hip-hop artist from Los Angeles. With her mother (Jenni Rivera), in prison and her father (Lou Diamond Phillips), struggling to provide for his daughters, Filly knows that a record contract just may be the answer to her family's financial problems. So when a record producer offers her a shot at stardom, she has to choose between selling out her dreams - or saving her family. Directed by Youssef Delara and Michael Olmos, FILLY BROWN is propelled by an exceptional cast featuring Lou Diamond Phillips, Edward James Olmos and the legendary Jenni Rivera in her final on-screen performance. Fueled by a fierce hip-hop score, FILLY BROWN heralds the arrival of Gina Rodriguez in the electrifying title role.
