Image from the film Real Women Have Curves
A coming-of-age story of a first generation Latina, Ana García (America Ferrera), who struggles to balance her family’s culture where she is expected to work in her sister’s dress warehouse, find a husband, and have children while forgetting her dreams of a college education. Curves on a blossoming young woman can be sexy, but not if you are told you have too many of them. Real Women Have Curves is a humorous and warmhearted look at a Mexican-American teenage girl coming of age in a boiling cauldron of cultural expectations, class constrictions, family duty, and her own personal aspirations. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. Director Patricia Cardoso is scheduled to be present. (Digital Presentation)
