I should preface this review by confessing that I've never (yet) read "Sense and Sensibility", upon which this film is supposed to be based (reset in the East L.A. latino community). I've seen it strongly recommended elsewhere (e.g., TVTropes) that you read the Austen book first then see the film to appreciate the latter even more.

The "official" reviews, cover blurb ("riches to rags"), and even the title are a little misleading. While the girls (Camilla Belle as the older sister, Nora, and Alexa Vega as Mary) do lose their fancy Beverly Hills home when their dad dies and it's revealed he was nearly bankrupt, and they have to go live with their aunt in the barrio, the *main* story is about them discovering they do love the latina side of their heritage and their new neighborhood, plus finding, losing, then regaining love relationships.

While it wasn't intentional, my order also included "Crossing Over", which should be quite a contrast in its treatment of latino individuals and communities in the U.S.

Two polar opposite sisters (the whore and the spinster) suddenly find themselves poor upon the death of their father. They discover they have a brother who takes 1/3. They move from Beverly Hills to East LA to live with their estranged aunt. The two sisters were excellently portrayed by Camille Bell and Alexa Vega who managed to shine through a predictable script with a weak plot and lack of character building. While attempting to break with the negative stereotypes of Latino-Americans it reinforces others.

The movie carries a message about the importance of family and is the perfect film for the teenage drama queen in your life. It might be fairer to the movie and Jane Austin to claim the film was inspired by her book rather than being based on it.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No nudity. No sex, although it shows Alexa waking up in bed with a man, no f-bombs.

The best thing I have done in a long time is order this movie - From Prada to Nada. It is most enjoyable, and we think that the next "Heart Throb" for girls will be Nicholas D'Agosto. Not only is he handsome, but his acting is really great. Not once was he a disappointment in this Very Entertaining movie. Why can't there be more movies like this (with Nicholas starring in it, of course). If anyone out there has a good movie along the lines of "From Prada to Nada", please say so. I was thoroughly entertained. I am glad to be a customer of Amazon so I can order more of these good movies. Thank you.
