About the Movie

Jennifer Lopez and Edward James Olmos star in this celebration of Selena Quintanilla Perez, a girl from South Texas with global talent, incredible will and magnetic charm. Young. Beautiful. Enormously gifted. At 23, Selena shone as a fresh star in a vibrantly new musical field. But just as she was poised to be the next pop-music sensation, her life was tragically cut short.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: By the end of the film, Selena has been all but canonized. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Apr 16, 2010

Fresh: Selena Quintanilla Perez's life was too short to fill a screen bio with traditional dramatic components, yet Selena infectiously salutes the Tejano singer who had a rapturous fan base when she was slain in 1995. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Selena surmounts its connect-the-dots approach to its heroine's life to create an appealing, energetic look at a too-briefly soaring musical star. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: What makes this movie work is Jennifer Lopez's electric performance as Selena, capturing the charismatic aspects of Selena's stage persona and the essence of her maturity as a growing woman. – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, Mar 21, 2017
