Leadership Lessons From Miss Bala
A Reel Leadership Article
What would you do if your best friend was kidnapped? Would you fight for her or would you flee? This is the question beauty make-up artist Gloria Fuentes (Gina Rodriguez) has to answer when her best friend Suzu (Cristina Rodlo) is kidnapped.
Miss Bala is loosely inspired by the true story of Mexican beauty queen Laura Zúñiga. The story has changed quite drastically but the theme remains the same: A young woman is forced into working for a drug cartel after witnessing a murder at a nightclub.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went to watch Miss Bala. I think I was expecting a movie along the lines of Taken 3 or Breaking In. What I got was something similar yet something new.
