real women have curves

A bright young Latina in LA seems destined to work in her family sweatshop instead of realizing her dreams to be a writer. As Ana is about to graduate from Beverly Hills High School (of the famous zip code), her goals come head to head with the fears and expectations of her conservative immigrant mother. Ana wants to go to Columbia University. Her mother wants her to help out in her sister’s sweatshop until she gets married. This old ways meet new ways coming of age story sometimes gets a bit preachy. (Ana, for all her openmindedness could be a bit more understanding of her mother.) However, it’s a great go girl tale of with an atypical heroine. [US, 2002]
