Welcome to Luminarias-where hot spicy dish gets served up with a Latin twist by four successful friends from East LA...with very discriminating taste in men! When separated divorce attorney Andrea finds herself guilty of falling for her white and Jewish opposing council, her three single friends choose sides in the ongoing and often hilarious debate over race and sex. As they discover just how much negative stereotypes color their relationships with men-and even with each other-it becomes clear that the search for Mr. Right is not exactly black and white!

I found Luminarias to be a well formulated movie that shows the lighter side of Mexican American women of today. The stereotypical depictions had me on the floor. I would recommend this movie to anyone. I found the characters endearing. The writer was definitely in touch with her audience and formulated it very well. The overall cast of characters were perfect for this film. All the characters played out their roles perfectly. One of the high points was addressing common misconceptions within the Latin community with regard to stereotypes and how they play out into reality sometimes. The more we know about others their is definitely more to enjoy.
