As Magdalena's Quinceanera (15th birthday) approaches, her simple, blissful life is complicated by the discovery that she is pregnant. Kicked out of her house, she finds a new family with Tomas, her great-granduncle and Carlos, her outcast gay cousin. Winner of both the Audience Award & Grand Jury Prize at The Sundance Film Festival this year, Echo Park L.A. is a moving, funny and socially poignant film about the challenges young people face when their values and desires differ from the suffocating age-old traditions of the family into which they are born. Echo Park L.A. offers an enlightening insight into the racial, class, and sexual tensions of a working class Latino neighbourhood in transition.
