From Prada to Nada

4*'s, this movie is the much, much better version of Cowbelles and Material girls. Those movies were, well, not super fantastic like this is.

This movie stars Camilla Belle and Alexa Vega who lose their father and have to move in with their aunt because their surprise illigitimate brother's wife kicks them out and redesigns their place just to sell it! Their aunt takes them in but she lives in East L.A. which is a far cry form Beverly Hills. In that town, they meet Wilmer Valderamma who Alexa Vega writes off for the first half of the movie  in favor of trying to find a way back to her old life as she is the type of Beverly Hills-ite who parties, shops til she drops, and always tries to get her hands on rich, good-looking men. Meanwhile, Camillas' character tries to avoid life as it does not fit into her ten year plan of law school and becoming a lawyer, she eventually does good by those she meets on her new choice of commute, the bus; by doing pro-bono work to help them overcome their horrible bosses who are being unfair... and manages to find a little love, but can she open herself up all the way?

This movie is a loose interpretation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, and well worth watching! If you hurry it may still be on Netflix, Happy watching!

Much love,

Avg Girl
