"Frontera" movie quotes tell the story of a former sheriff who seeks out to find out who killed his wife. The western drama was written and directed by Michael Berry in his feature film writing and directing debut. "Fontera" opened in theaters in the United States on September 5, 2014.

In "Frontera," Miguel Ramirez (Michael Peña) leaves his pregnant wife Paulina (Eva Longoria) in Mexico while he travels on foot to the United States in search of a better life for their family. Just over the border in Arizona, Miguel, along with a man he's traveling with, meets Livy (Amy Madigan), who was out of a horseback ride on her ranch. Moments later, someone fires a rifle which spooks her horse, sending her crashing to the rocks below, killing her.

When Livy's husband, former sheriff Roy (Ed Harris), hears the shots, he immediately heads to the area and begins an unofficial investigation into the killing. But when current Sheriff Randall Hunt (Aden Young) arrests Miguel for the crime, Roy isn't so sure they've nabbed the right guy and his following investigation leads him to surprising conclusions.

"Frontera" brings some serious subject matter to theaters already packed with lighter titles such as "The Identical," "The November Man," "The Congress," "Life of Crime," "Starred Up," "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "If I Stay," "When the Game Stands Tall," "Are You Here," "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Frank," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight."
