Movie Review: 'Our Family Wedding'
By Damarys Ocaña Perez | 03/12/2010 - 12:00

For a lot of Latinas who live constantly straddling two cultures, watching America Ferrera in Our Family Wedding, opening in theaters today, March 12, will be kind of like looking in a mirror. She plays Lucia, a modern, independent, ambitious girl—who turns into a wuss when she’s with her traditional Latin family: They don’t know she’s dropping out of law school to pursue a dream, let alone that their angelita lives with her boyfriend and has hot sex on the couch. She is thoroughly relatable.

By Mariela Rosario | 02/12/2010 - 10:24
