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>

Trivia

Mary states the the 'birds of paradise' flower is the state flower of California during the Independence Day party. This is incorrect, however the 'birds of paradise' is the official flower of the city of Los Angeles, where the movie takes place. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Mary has entered the house of Bruno and stands in front of the painting that he made, she hears Bruno's voice and gets closer to the open doors to look what's going on, one can clearly see that the cast around her neck is missing, yet when she rolls out towards the garden, she's wearing the cast again.

Romance/drama , like it says is what you'll get
8 May 2011 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I rarely come on IMDb to review movies but after watching this and seeing the poor ratings for this film, I just had to say something. Like the previous reviewer has said, don't let the ratings fool you, if you know what this film is about and do plan on seeing this then except nothing more than a great watch from beginning to end.

The film takes on the subject of spoiled girls living in wealthy-LA and then losing it all and going to live with their relatives on the less "fortunate" side. The Mexican stereotype is kind of overly used, but you start to see they are just a friendly normal neighborhood.

The actors played their parts wonderfully, my personal favorite Camilla Belle did superb. This film inst recommended for everyone but I know most will love it by the time they reach the credits.
