I’ve been known to watch non-Oscar nominated movies while I multitask around the house, so it wasn’t really surprising when Netflix suggested Falling Inn Love. I was curious about the female lead Christina Milian, who I recognized as a Latina that had been up-and-coming a few years back. How, I wondered, would they represent her Latinx identity in a movie set in New Zealand, if at all?
