Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
"De moda" is quite an entertaining series that portrays the lives of a bunch of people who work in a boutique. The show's greatest attraction is the cast, including such fine actors as Mar Regueras or Diego Martín, but they are unable to compensate the many flaws in the script and even in the basic premise of the series.
To start with, the series is pretty unrealistic, and anyone even remotely familiar with the way shops work can notice that six shop assistants and a manager are quite a large staff for a small store. Besides, do they ever sell anything? The plot concentrates so much in the romantic concerns of the characters that it fails to portray the ordinary situations that make these kind of series so likable. The plot is nevertheless engaging enough, but the dialogue is often corny and affected.
In a nutshell, this is a fairly engaging series but it comes nowhere near the quality of other current Spanish series.
