Print this article Being thankful for what you have is the common thread of many movies, whether it be "Click" or "Confessions of a Shopaholic." That theme is once again on examined in "From Prada to Nada," a loose adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel Sense and Sensibility. The new release DVD hit shelves May 3.
The film follows the plight of two sisters, Nora (Camilla Belle) and Mary (Alexa Vega) who have enjoyed living in the lap of luxury as the daughters of a wealthy businessman. However, they are left penniless when their father dies unexpectedly and they're forced to move in with their aunt Aurelia (Adriana Barraza).
They have to quickly adjust to a life where everything isn't handed to them, and things don't go smoothly at first. As they adjust to having to do things a little bit differently, they begin to take on appreciation for life, love and family.
The movie features an impressive supporting cast, headlined by Barraza, who earned an Oscar nomination for her part in "Babel." "That 70s Show" star Wilmer Valderrama also gives a compelling performance.
