Storyline

When their dad dies on his 55th birthday, Beverley Hills sisters, Mary and Nora, find themselves destitute, forced by a grasping sister-in-law to move in with their aunt in East L.A. Mary, the younger sister, is mortified: spoiled by her dad, ignorant of Spanish, scared of the vatos. Her sister convinces her to finish college, and she promptly decides that one of her T.A.s will be her ticket back to Rodeo Drive. Elder sister Nora, a law student, gets a job as a legal intern, and Edward, her supervisor, the brother of the grasping sister-in-law, promptly falls for her. Slowly, the sisters realize what a rich place the barrio is at the same time that they get bruised in the contact sport of love. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When Nora and Edward are kissing in the kitchen, Mary walks into the kitchen and claims to get a fork when she actually grabs a spoon out of the drawer and hurries out of the kitchen. This is not a character error, it's a joke of the movie. She calls the spoon a fork because she is flustered in the moment. See more »

Modern Day Masterpiece
7 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The complex plot and poetic dialogue demand a lot from the cast and audience alike. All aspiring actors should be forced to be watch this film at drama school as it contains the full spectrum of emotions that they would be expected to convey throughout their career, such as happiness, sadness and being in love. Particular highlights include the 'drunk scene' where it is clear the actress had spent time with drunk people, in order to ensure she gave a realistic performance. It is this kind of method acting and attention to detail, that really make this film stand out. Being British, it was great to learn some more about the Hispanic community in the USA. Such was the sensitive portrayal of Mexicans in this film, that I have since cancelled my holiday to Mexico. This film gives such a rich account of the complexities of Mexican culture, that I don't think that a trip there would add anything extra. In short, if you're looking for a sassy, poignant, funny and unpredictable film, then this is the one for you! Jane Austen would be proud to see her name in the credits!
