“An inspiring account of a young woman whose talent, hard work, and basic decency make her a role model. The music is infectious and lively, and the story moves right along, from the family’s first stumbling efforts to make music, to Selena’s triumph at the Grammy Awards… Until Selena came along in the 1980s, no Mexican-American female had ever become a singing star; the Tejano field was strictly for men. But this talented young woman crossed all boundaries; she succeeded beyond even her father’s vision and had begun to develop into an important figure in the music world when she was killed by the president of her fan club, a woman who had embezzled money from the young star. Despite this troubling outcome, the film presents many positive lessons on the value of hard work and the power of motivation.” – Leonard Maltin, Family Film GuideRated PG for some mild language and thematic elements.
