With Lionsgate’s romantic comedy From Prada to Nada opening January 28, the studio has sent over 9 clips from the film that stars Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker and Adriana Barraza. The one line synopsis (via IMDb) is:
“A Latina spin on Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, where two spoiled sisters who have been left penniless after their father’s sudden death are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles.”
While I debated posting the clips, I figured Camilla Belle and Alexa Vega fans might like to see them. If interested, hit the jump. I’ve also posted a more detailed synopsis:
From Prada to Nada is a new romantic comedy starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, Kuno Becker and Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza. It’s a whimsical fish-out-of-water story of two spoiled sisters: Nora (Camilla Belle), a law student, and Mary (Alexa Vega), an undergrad party girl, living with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so “90210” she refuses to admit she is of Mexican decent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia’s (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. They are terrified to leave their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community.
