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

When Edward brings Nora the "deed" to co-sign at the end of the movie, the preprinted information on the document lists the house's address as being in the "State of Utah." All of the other information (street, city, county, and zip code) is for Los Angeles, California, the actual setting of the movie. See more »

Better than you'd think it would be
13 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie has characters all over it, some with ridiculously short skirts and way too high heels. It has elements of a culture completely unrelated to my country, Australia, yet the peoples emotional connections come through clearly. I've known ethnic groups and come from half Italian one myself, enough to be able to recognise the clarity of the writing with respect to the beliefs and customs of these Mexican people living in LA. I have been to LA but didn't go to East LA apart from some fast food stands in Glendale ;) but the murals and artwork, the street appeal of it all is right there in this movie. It's very real and not just pandering to a pc crowd of wannabe humanitarians, it's the real deal. At the same time it's light hearted enough to be a romantic comedy but deep enough to capture some real human emotion. As I said in my title, it's much better than you'd think it will be. Damn girl that dress is short!
