This film won the Grand Jury Prize for Dramatic Feature at the most recent Sundance Film Festival. Magdalena is the daughter of a Mexican-American family who run a storefront church in Echo Park, Los Angeles. With her fifteenth-birthday approaching, all she can think about is her boyfriend, her Quinceanera dress, and the limo she hopes to arrive in on her special day. But a few months before the celebration, Magdalena gets pregnant. As the elaborate preparations for her Quinceanera proceed, it is only a matter of time before her religious father finds out. This is a fresh, spirited drama that stands out for its unprententious charm.
