Miss Bala (2011)
In crime-dominated Mexico, a beauty-queen hopeful is unwillingly caught up in gang affairs in this Cannes-nominated action flick.
"Miss Bala tells the story of Laura, a young woman whose aspirations of becoming a beauty queen turn against her, delivering her into the hands of a gang that’s terrorizing northern Mexico. Although Laura succeeds in winning the beauty queen crown, her experiences as an unwilling participant in Mexico’s violent war leave her shaken and transformed." (Official Synopsis)
