Movie Review: Quinceañera


This movie brought two completely different interests of mine together in one story line: the effects of gay white gentrification of "older" neighborhoods in urban U.S. cities and the development of gay "minority" identities wherever in the world they come to exist. This happens to do both of these things. The story starts with everyone at Eileen's quinceañera. The main character, Magdalena, is there. And Carlos, Eileen's older brother shows up, uninvited, drunk wanting to participate in this important community affair. Fast forward, Magdalena and her boyfriend engage in some non-penetrative acts which makes her pregnant. Her born-again Christian family rejects her and she moves in with the very old uncle, Tomas, in his small home that is the back house in a two house lot. Carlos is already living with him because hi and Eileen's parents suspected (correctly) that he is gay.


Carlos (in the middle in white), meanwhile, meets, greets and gets it on with Tomas' new landlords, a gay white couple that have bought the two house lot at a depressed price and "fix it up" in an effort to gentrify the neighborhood and make money. The couple objectify Carlos and lure him into a three-way sex thing. However, this creates problems for them (in their already failing relationship) and Carlos appropriately ends up being the scapegoat.

The movie was tragic and fascinating and worth the watch. It won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

  2. Hello, line of flight! I actually saw this with my mom one lazy Sunday afternoon. No expectations whatsoever. We were pleasantly surprised. It's feel good without being contrived.
