breaking ground

Congratulations, Eva!

Eva Longoria has added one more accomplishment to her long list of career milestones. The "Desperate Housewives" actress, "Devious Maids" producer/director, and philanthropist has just premiered her first Spanish-speaking film "Frontera."

"Frontera" ("Border"), tackles immigration and human trafficking. Eva plays Paulina, a Mexican woman whose husband Miguel (Michael Peña) illegally crosses the border into the United States to find work—only to end up jail after he's unjustly accused by an Arizona sheriff (Ed Harris). 

The theme is close to Eva's heart, who grew up in Texas and has Mexican-American parents. She has spoken out about her feelings on immigration, such as when she expressed concern for the more than 60,000 children who have arrived at the U.S. border fleeing gang violence in their home countries. 

Felicidades, Eva! Check out some of the exclusive photos from the premiere below. 

 

 

 

"Frontera" will hit theaters on September 5.
