Product Description

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!

Amazon.com

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

I had every intention of seeing this movie in the theaters but missed it. When it came up as a recommendation on Amazon I rented it immediately. Yes, it is very, loosely based on Sense and Sensibility. VERY LOOSELY, mostly in thematic strains, but you can still see the connection.

The twist is that the characters are based on a hispanic family in Los Angeles. There is an easy transition from english to spanish in the film, with the spanish dialogue subtitled. This is a particularly charming aspect of the movie as the transition happens effortlessly and really lends to the comical aspect of the film. Being hispanic myself, only made it more endearing to me. The family from East Los Angeles, reminded me so much of relatives and friends, I was crying with laughter! The aunt is truly a wonderful actress and has some of the funniest lines. Bruno, played by Wilmer Valderama, is exceptional. HIs subtle approach to his character was a pleasant surprise. Alexa Vega plays the perfect "Barbie" character!

Knowing some spanish/spanglish is a definite plus to get the idiosyncrasies of the script but, by no means, restricts any viewer from getting the humor.

I rented it and then bought it. Is it an Academy Award winning film? No, but it is different, refreshing and a breath of fresh air.

This movie was funny, sad at times, and the tension ran deep. I thought this would be another "cute" movie, but there were so many lessons in this so-called "silly" movie.

1.) illusion versus reality
2.) family comes first
3.) stay true to your roots
4.) be kind to others/help the down-trodden
5.) be happy wherever you are
and many, many more

From the box this looked like a rather brainless comedy, and some days, when you've worked all day and you want a laugh that is what you want, something fun, not too deep that will make you laugh. The movie far exceeded expectations for me.

The premise of the story is two rich, and totally opposite 20 somethings are left penniless when their father has a heart attack on his 55th birthday. They are devastated, but even moreso when they realize he actually had filed for bankruptcy and the high life would soon change for them, when they move from their mansion near Rodeo Drive to their aunt's home in East LA. One sister is going to law school and she is the one that adapts the best, the other can't quite make the transition to the new neighborhood. One of the best lines in the film is when she judges a guy she sees on the street who is wearing a hoody and looks a little scruffy, saying "Are you Homeless?" and he says "No, are you?". Yeah, that one was tough. Can't judge a book.....

Though this looked more like a comedy, and had comedic moments it is more a story about how family, tradition and heritage are so important and having a good life doesn't necessarily mean having all the material things that you want. Both sisters learn important lessons in their fall from Prada to Nada and come out the better for it.

I did not know any of the actors in the film, but felt that the acting was good and the story, though a bit predictable was very enjoyable. I'm also a sucker for a good ending and I really liked this one.

Overall, a feel-good movie, with a bit of heart.

The movie is based on ridiculous stereotypes. The swarthy Hispanic father with a big mustache and a facial scar. A short rotund maid with a bun. Brainless daughters who dress horribly despite Prada in the title. Like another viewer commented, they had yellow tans -- think Spongebob Squarepants in heels.

This movie is supposedly a Latina spin on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" And, although others found it charming, I found it too nonsensical to be enjoyable.

...even when you know you can't win. 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 reenforces others.

The movie carries a message about the importance of family and is the perfect film for the teenage drama queen in your life. No nudity. No sex, although it shows Alexa waking up in bed with a man, no f-bombs. 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, I mean they did cut out the third sister, Margaret.

FROM PRADA TO NADA (a/k/a POBRES DIVAS, Dir. Angel Garcia, Writ. Fina Torres & Luis Alfaro, based on the novel Sense and Sensibility (Dover Thrift Editions) by Jane Austen, 2011, 107 minutes) is a delightful family film and one of the best classic adaptations I have ever seen. With proper nods to Emma Thompson's crowning achievement as adaptationist/writer of the Ang Lee film version Sense And Sensibility (see my review), this film rang true in such a way that I imagined Austen would have written this if she had lived in modern times.

The Dominguez sisters (Nora and Mary, played respectively by Camille Belle and Alexa Vega, based on Eleanor and Marianne Dashwood respectively) suffer the sudden loss of their father on his birthday - and soon find they have suffered the loss of their exquisite California mansion. At the reading of the will, they meet their hitherto unknown half-brother Gabriel, Jr., (Pablo Cruz, loosely based on Austen's John Dashwood) and his snotty wife Olivia (April Bowlby, based on Austen's Fanny Ferrars Dashwood).

As it is Gabriel, Jr. who has all the money and the Dominguez sisters find their father was completely bankrupt, Gabriel and Olivia appear to buy the house out from under the girls. They end up living with their maternal aunt (Belita Moreno) in East L.A. There the cast is completely assembled: the wonderful Nicholas D'Agosto as Edward Ferris (doing a version of Hugh Grant's Edward Ferrars from
