Newcomer Gina Rodriguez wows Sundance as ‘Filly Brown’

Gina Rodriguez may have arrived at the Sundance Film Festival as a complete unknown, but the 27-year Puerto Rican is leaving it an indie film star. Rodriguez became the toast of the Sundance Film Festival’s opening weekend playing the title character in new movie ‘Filly Brown,’ about a young Latina rapper struggling to keep her family together after her mom is jailed on drug charges.
