“The 33” tells the true story of 33 Chilean miners who had been trapped underground for 69 days. It also portrays the efforts of Maria Segovia, a woman who had in real life, fought to keep Chilean family members informed about the status of their trapped family members. Segovia was Chilean but portrayed by French actress, Juliette Binoche.

15. “American Drug Lord”

British actor, Charlie Hunnam, got quite a bit of attention a couple of years ago when it had been announced that he had accepted a part  in the film “American Drug Lord” as Edgar Valdez Villarreal. The Mexican-American drug lord had been given the nick name “La Barbie” for his blue eyes and blonde hair, and he was Latino. Many believe Hunnam’s casting of the role was still a complete injustice.
