Filly Brown is getting a personal introduction to Mexico by way of the family of the late Jenni Rivera, who was a popular music star in the country.

Rivera was killed in December in a tragic plane crash. Filly Brown was her first and only acting role.

Filly Brown opened in the U.S. on April 19 and brought an estimated $2.8 million at the box office. It is poised to hit DVD and Blu-ray on July 30.

A darling of film festivals in 2012 and early 2013, Filly Brown tells the story of a young woman who's "striving to find her voice and seize her dreams without compromise," but her goals are complicated by the pressure of friends and family.

Youssef Delara and Michael D. Olmos co-direct a cast that includes much-acclaimed newcomer Gina Rodriguez as the title character, Rivera, Lou Diamond Phillips and Edward James Olmos.
