Editorial Review:
Nora and Mary only know the good life in Beverly Hills – shopping, posh parties, and more shopping – but they’re in for a big shock when Daddy’s fortune suddenly disappears. Thankfully, an aunt takes them under her wing but she lives on the other side of town. Laugh out loud as these princesses embark on the biggest adventure of their lives…without designer labels!
From Prada to Nada is a romantic comedy, a social commentary about America's class system and Latino culture in America, and a modern retelling of Jane Austen's classic novel Sense and Sensibility. The definition of true wealth varies from person to person; to some it means designer labels and fancy cars, to others a caring family, or a strong connection with one's culture. Well-to-do sisters Nora and Mary are opposites in every way, from their long-range goals to their choices in clothing. While Nora has a strict 10-year plan that avoids romance in favor of law school and a law career, Mary is into shopping, status symbols, and dating wealthy, good-looking boys. When their father dies unexpectedly, Nora and Mary find themselves alone, penniless, and united in a common battle to survive. A kind aunt takes them in, but her place in East Los Angeles is a far cry from their elegant home in Beverly Hills, and her way of life couldn't be more different from what they're accustomed to. Besides being forced to give up things like Prada bags and enrollment in law school, Mary and Nora are thrown into a decidedly unfamiliar Latino culture about which they find they have many misconceptions. From Prada to Nada is effective on three very different levels: it does a good job of exposing the dichotomy between the wealthy and the poor in America, of authentically portraying what it's like to be Latino-American, and of taking a classic story and making it modern and accessible. Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, and Adriana Barraza are especially compelling in their respective roles, and the film's rich setting and the skilled camerawork further enhance the emotional power of the viewing experience. Bonus features include a 23-minute interview with the producers and directors, an18-minute conversation between muralist and founder of the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) Judy Baca and Valderrama, a round-table discussion with the main cast members, bloopers, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer. --Tami Horiuchi
