I’m kind of excited about this new movie coming out?
As you may have noticed I’m a bit of an Austenite. While browsing for a gift for a friend of mine, I ran across a little tidbit on a website. Apparently, Sense and Sensbility is getting remade but Latino style! The movie, which was originally Sense and Sensibilidad (now From Prada to Nada) is about two spoiled Latina girls (a law student and a free spirit) whose dad loses everything. As a result, the girls have to go live in the Barrio with their aunt and adjust to their new life.
As a Latina and a mushy Austen fan I am just way excited. While reading Jane Austen I always try to put myself in the position of the protagonists and find that although we are centuries apart and my family is Mexican, there is some amount of mirroring. I mean, my family can be just as conservative and obsessed with marriage as the Brits were in the Regency Era. A few other similarities:
