Movie Preview: How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer


Apparently, How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer made the festival rounds back in 2005, but is only now coming out in theaters. Why? I don't know. All I know is that Garcia Girls finds America Ferrera in yet another coming-of-age tale (see also: Real Women Have Curves and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), which doesn't really bother me because I think she's so compelling in these roles, I could watch her do these movies several more times (and I'll get another chance this summer with the Pants sequel).

The description on the movie's official site puts it best:

What does female desire look like? And how do self-inflicted limitations and social expectations shade and color it? [Director] Georgina Garcia Riedel lovingly explores the terrain of longing, loneliness, and self-realization among three generations of single women in a Mexican American family as they grapple with romantic drought.

A lot of movies and TV shows like to pretend that female desire stops at a certain age, so I for one am stoked to see someone — anyone — exploring the issues of female sexuality — at different ages. For exclusive iVillage clips from the film, click here. To check out the sweet-looking trailer,
