This film bears comparison with Marco Kreuzpaintner's "Trade" (2007), from Roadside Attractions, a large-scale drama about illegal trade from Mexico, a New Jersey family and the desperate effort of a young man to save his sister.
"AMC Independent" used to be called "AMC Select". In Arlington, the Shirlington Theater, which looks like it is ready to be razed for real estate condo development, is the main indie house, but the Courthouse sometimes shows some of them (especially recently). Usually Tysons and Georgetown and Hoffman Center reserve a couple auditoriums for indie films.
AMC would do well to provide a modern theater in Arlington for indie movies. Maybe it could join forces with the (Shirlington) Signature Theater next door (a stage) to build a state-of-the-art facility. The older Shirlington and Courthouse properties can't last forever.
Also, AMC hands out a sheet for the Women's International League for Peace & Freedom, link here.
