About the Movie

Real women take chances, have flaws, embrace life...and have curves. For 18-year-old Ana, not everybody appreciates the direction in which her appetites are taking her. In her feature film debut, America Ferrera stars as Ana, a first-generation Mexican-American from East L.A., who struggles to strike a balance between her mainstream ambitions of attending college and her traditional cultural heritage--as personified by Ana's needy mother, who wants the girl to work at the family's sewing factory. Lupe Ontiveros and George Lopez co-star in this delightful coming-of-age film that was based on a play by Josefina Lopez. Directed by Patricia Cardoso; teleplay by Josefina Lopez and George LaVoo.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's refreshingly low on the kind of Cinema of Empowerment pedantry that often goes along with stories about ethnic families, sweatshop working conditions, or women confronting issues of weight and body image. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Patricia Cardoso's first film is a marvel of pointed humor, and Ontiveros and Ferrera could not be better. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: There's a virtue to pleasing crowds when you do it as well as this movie does. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: It's so underwritten that you can't figure out just where the other characters, including Ana's father and grandfather, come down on the issue of Ana's future. – Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel, Jun 24, 2010

Great Movie 💕

I love this movie because I like the actors and I love Cali❤


Pleasantly surprised. I'm not Latino, but having visited for a lengthy period of time , I found this to be very authentic and the story very real. For .99 cents it's well worth a look 👀 see. 🎥
