“Adelante” invites the audience into St. Patrick’s Church just outside of Philadelphia, and through portraying the lives of selected individuals - a remarkable Irish priest, young Mexican immigrants and older Irish parishioners - the film shows how different communities in Norristown, PA, have made mutual adjustments in order to create meaningful and heartfelt bonds of friendship and understanding. We see American parishioners from this once moribund church learn to accept and ultimately embrace this new group of immigrants who bring new life to their church and community. We also witness the expectant joy of immigrant families establishing new lives in an unfamiliar, at times bewildering, country that offers their children more opportunities, while also observing the painful compromises caused by leaving behind family and support networks. Ultimately we see these two groups interact in harmony with each other and come to understand and rejoice in each other’s lives.
