Beautifully crafted coming-of-age drama about good-hearted Los Angeles teenager (Emily Rios) who finds herself unaccountably pregnant, and her sexually confused cousin (Jesse Garcia) who are taken in by their gentle uncle (Chalo Gonzalez) after their families reject them. Writer-directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's colorful Sundance Film Festival winner with its moving themes of tolerance, redemption and forgiveness overcomes some plot elements that may not be to every taste. Brief violence, some rough and crude language, sexual banter, premarital sex, a couple of nongraphic homosexual encounters, and drug use. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
