Example text

It was a Life and Art Intertwine Jennifer felt a strong kinship with Selena when she took on playing the life of the slain singer. Although she came from a much different background, Jennifer was able to connect to Selena’s legacy and spirit in a powerful way. She comments, “Being Latino in this country, we’re all looked at the same. ’ I grew up in the Bronx, she grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Texas, but where she was at when she passed away. . ”* Elsewhere, Jennifer has commented on the tendency people have to try and pigeonhole other people, especially celebrities, very quickly.

Jack is a 10year-old kid with Williams’s powerful adult body. This makes Jennifer’s role as his fifth-grade teacher a bittersweet one. Her student is a grown-up in body but not in mind, and it is touching when he develops a schoolboy crush on her. At the same time, the teacher knows that Jack’s disease will not let him live to full adulthood. Despite the film’s bittersweet quality, appearing in Jack was a pleasant experience for Jennifer. It was a pleasure for her to play a different type of role than she had done earlier.

Although not a smash hit, it did reasonably well at the box office. More important than the amount of money it made, however, was that the film proved to be a watershed event in several ways. It was one of the few high-profile Hollywood movies with a Latino theme ever made, and it showed Latino characters in a positive manner. The relative success of the movie and the positive portrayal of the Latino characters helped pave the way for future productions. Selena dominated 1997’s American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) awards, winning top honors for best film, actress, actor, and director.
