Real Women Have Curves
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.
