Review Fourteen-year-old Magdalena (Emily Rios) does not mind so much having to wear her cousin Eileen's (Alicia Sixtos) hand-me-down dress for her upcoming quinceanara celebration, the Mexican rite honoring a girl's fifteenth birthday and her passage into womanhood. But she really wants to do the occasion up right, arriving in a rented Hummer limo just like Eileen did at hers, something her storefront-preacher dad adamantly opposes. But as Quinceanara - a funny, moving drama that manages to seamlessly blend a smart coming-of-age story with a hard look at gentrification - unfolds, father and daughter can only wish that all their arguments were that trivial.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review "Quinceanera" beguilingly begins with an elaborate celebration. From the money lavished on it, it could be a wedding -- except that a single figurine sits atop a tiered cake where a bride and groom would be. The ceremony, from which this warmly appealing film takes its title, marks a Latina's 15th birthday when she ostensibly becomes a woman...Glatzer and Westmoreland live in Echo Park, and they have given their film a remarkable sense of place. It's refreshing at a time when you have to sit through the entire credits to tell if a movie was actually shot where it's supposedly set.
