‘From Prada to Nada’ tops the indie box office charts

Have you seen this riches to rags story on the big screen? You probably heard the buzz online. ‘From Prada to Nada’ tops the indie box office charts, making $1,115,638 over opening weekend. Not bad for an independent Latino film, right?

While some protest it for enforcing cultural stereotypes, I say watch it. It’s a family film, written by veteran screenwriter Fina Torres and Luis Alfaro, directed by Angel Garcia. Get over the prejudgments, have a laugh and see what some Latinos are doing in film today. The movie stars Alexa Vega, Camilla Belle and Luis Rosales.
