Not your typical hollywood heroine: Miss Bala (2011)

© Based on the real-life drama of Miss Sinaloa, Laura Zuniga.
“Miss Bala”(2011) is directed by Gerardo Naranjo and offers a re-look at beauty pageants, female action figures & corruption in contemporary Mexico. It premiered at Un Certain Regard in Cannes in 2011.
I thought this film poster was the most interesting out of the bunch. Below it is the photo of the actual beauty queen.
