The film, which opens in Los Angeles and NYC on Friday, January 20, 2012 and is Mexico's official submission for the Academy Awards in the category of foreign-language film, has been much talked about ever since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and throughout its run at top festivals in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles.

Storyline: With a title that translates as the punning "Miss Bullet," the Mexican film Miss Bala is based in part on the real-life story of a beauty pageant winner who was arrested alongside a drug gang and paraded before the media amid accusations of corruption behind her crown.

It aims to not only be a provocative, thoughtful action film for the art house, looking at the overwhelming problems of the drug-trafficking epidemic in Mexico, but Miss Bala also marks an ambitiously bold step forward for director Gerardo Naranjo.

Miss Bala is nominated for a 2012 Goya Award (Spain's highest film award) in the category of "Best Spanish Language Foreign Film" to take place in Madrid, Spain on Sunday, February 19, 2012. For more information, click here.
