What to Netflix: America the Beautiful

If the recent Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations are any indication — not to mention our best new TV show poll — people love Ugly Betty and its endearing star, America Ferrera. It makes sense, of course, since Ferrera is so good as the smart, funny, normal-seeming Betty trying to make it in the catty world of fashion journalism. If once a week is not enough America for you, put these pre-Mode Magazine films in your Netflix queue.

Real Women Have Curves
Real Women Have Curves tells the story of Ana, a Mexican-American young woman living with her family in East L.A. Ana dreams of a better future than working in her sister's sewing sweatshop and hopes to go to Columbia University. She struggles to work towards her American dream while still remaining true to her Mexican roots.

To see one more great film,

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Goofy title aside, this sweet tale of young girlfriendship is heartwarming and fun. Based on the young adult novel by Anne Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is a coming-of-age story about four best friends who find a mysterious pair of pants that fit each of them even though they vary in size. The friends take turns wearing the pants during a life-changing summer, learning important lessons about family, love, friendship, and themselves. At the least it will make you nostalgic for the days when you yourself were a kind of Ya-Ya-Sister-in-Training.

I saw *Real Women Have Curves* several years ago at a local film festival. I attended with an old friend, one with whom I had shared many conversations about weight and the shame attached to our being overweight in a skinny world. This film provided many poignant moments and many of a laugh-out-loud nature.
