5. It’s Simply About Time
Ritchie Valens famously got the biopic treatment in the form of La Bamba, as did Selena, yet an artist with the longevity and track record of Celia Cruz remained absent from having a biopic made about her. Although there have been several documentaries made about Celia (at last count there were four) this is the first dramatic piece of art made about her life. And it isn’t just a musical but a drama that focuses on various parts of her life as she made her way from a shy student to radio contestant to salsera. All we can say is…well it’s about time.
