25 Movie Viewing Questions for the Film Real Women Have Curves by Patricia Cardoso. Perfect for High School and College students! Especially for those teaching a unit on Postsecondary Education, Spanish, Mexican Americans, High School, Gender Relations, Feminism and Family Traditions.

I used this for my unit on Families and Communities for an AP Spanish Class and for a beginning Spanish I and II class as well since there is a lot of English in this film.

Sypnosis:

This is the story of Ana, a first generation Mexican-American teenager on the verge of becoming a woman. She lives in the predominately Latino community of East Los Angeles. Freshly graduated from high school, Ana receives a full scholarship to Columbia University. Her very traditional, old-world parents feel that now is the time for Ana to help provide for the family, not the time for college. Torn between her mainstream ambitions and her cultural heritage she agrees to work with her mother at her sister's downtown LA sewing factory. Over the summer she learns to admire the hardworking team of women who teach her solidarity and teamwork. Still at odds with what her mother expects of her, Ana realizes that leaving home to continue her education is essential to finding her place proudly in the world as an American and Chicana.

Ana es una chica de 18 años de origen hispano que reside con su familia en Los Ángeles. Está a punto de acabar los estudios de secundaria y es la primera de su familia que puede atreverse a soñar con ir a la Universidad. Tiene posibilidades reales de conseguir una beca, pero su madre se opone. No cree que sea lo más conveniente para ella, pues lo que espera es que se ponga a trabajar, adelgace y encuentre novio pronto. Al acabar las clases Ana tiene que empezar a trabajar en el taller de costura de su hermana, presionada por un gran pedido.


Temas en el filme:
La educación, el papel de la familia, las costumbres y tradiciones, las condiciones del trabajo de las mujeres; la construcción de los cuerpos y la sexualidad; la reflexión sobre el canon de belleza occidental y la construcción del amor. Todo ello hace de ‘Las mujeres de verdad tienen curvas’ una película única en el panorama cinematográfico.
