Storyline

The ultimate rebel Adela boasts three tattoos, a body piercing and a recent arrest for alleged indecent behavior. Petrified that his beloved daughter will spoil his chances of becoming the next governor of Mexico City, Adela's father has enrolled her in the only remaining charm school for young ladies in the city. Maca Ribera guarantees that her school can turn any young girl into a "domestic goddess" ... that is until she meets Adela. The two determined women face-off in a battle of wills that turns the school and its colorful bunch of school-mates upside down when Maca attempts to transform the irreverent Adela into a suitable First Daughter.

The story of Adele is deeper than it seems. A teenager struggles to find her place in society.
7 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ninas Mal or Charm School will make you smile and feel good!!! In a very nice pace, Charm School shows a very real part of Mexican society. Yes,it portrays the lives of the upper classes!!! Although the movie might represent wealthy Mexicans as shallow or corrupt, it expresses certain facts and deeper problems of today's society. In the middle of it all, the main characters are real and one could identify with either of them. They go beyond their local scene when they make you think about family, love, sex or politics. And, they make you wonder about yourself and your own life!!! Once more, these people tell you that you have to fight, in this new millennium, for what you believe in!!! A must see!!!
