Wilmer Valderrama as Bruno (Edward Ferrars?)

Description from imdb:
A Latina spin on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," where two spoiled sisters who have been left penniless after their father's sudden death are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles.

Quote from Alexa who plays Mary:
“I play a girl named Mary Dominguez and she is snot. They [her and her family] end up going through a hardship and losing a lot of money, and they have to go live in a dump — not really a dump, but a dump in her eyes. Towards the end, they have a revelation about being proud of their heritage. They really embrace their Mexican culture.”

Another cute one to look out for ;-D

  3. Hmm... I'm not sure about this, but mostly it's probably because I think Wilmer Valderrama is a douchebag...
