Storyline

A pair of naive young girls learn that even the most insignificant actions can have lasting consequences. Influenced by the hip-hop thug lifestyle and seeking to explore life outside of their insulated, culturally homogenized suburb, pretty young teenagers Allison and Emily set their sights on East L.A. to experience the "gangsta" lifestyle firsthand. By the time the pair meet a ruthless Mexican drug dealer named Hector, some true-life Latino gang-bangers, and realize just how far out of their element they really are, it may already be too late to turn back. Written by Giancarlos Calderon

Trivia

When Allison is at the police station after the bust on the street, the girl talking to her in cell says, "...then the cop started asking me these really dumb questions, like what's closer to you now, the moon or Europe?" That question was asked to the co-writer of the movie, Stephen Gaghan, when he was detained by drug officers during his battle with drug addiction. The whole story can be found in a Newsweek article written by Stephen Gaghan. See more »

Nice:)

Nice picture of the USA:)

White people are idiots and naive,Latin people are drug dealers,that's how the world thinks about the USA. And everyone wants to be black?Unjust?Unreal?

What about "U-571", "The Da Vinci Code", "Kingdom of Heaven"? There are many lies in that movies but nobody cares.

About the Anne: In my opinion the main character was played well. Anne Hathaway who is trying to distance herself from her previous Disney movie image by choosing a role where she's naked as often as possible.She really does a great job as the pretty little rich girl.

BTW The best characters were Hector and his gang.
