"The Curse of La Llorona" Casts White Actress As Lead Character Anna Garcia

We all know the legend of La Llorona. 

The infamous leyenda of a mother who, possessed by a jealous rage, drowns her children and spends eternity weeping for them and dragging other children to watery deaths, has frightened generations of Latinos.

Now, Warner Brothers is coming out with a movie version...starring white actress Linda Cardellini as lead character Anna Garcia, a widowed social worker and mom in the 1970s. 

 

 

Latinos and non-latinos alike shared their disappointment.

 

 

 

 

 

Hey, Hollywood, we're glad you're finally recognizing Latino stories, but show some respect to the people and culture. 

If Crazy Rich Asians can be a box office hit with an all-Asian cast, why not a movie with an all-Latino cast?
