"The English language has
at least one nine-letter word that can always
remain a valid word as letters are removed one
at a time."
- CLARIFICATION: I
spent a lot of time on this before I
realized I had misunderstood the objective.
I thought the letters had to be removed, in
order, from the end of the word! The letter
may be removed from any part of the word,
but the remaining letters may not be
re-ordered. Thus, "boring" may become
"bring," and so forth.

A trailer and two clips
from Quinceañera, aka "Echo Park, L.A."
- "Quinceañera" is a
look at what happens when teenage sexuality,
age-old rituals, and real estate prices
collide. It is a reinvention of Kitchen Sink
drama, fueled by the racial, class, and
sexual tensions of a Latino neighborhood in
transition. Magdalena (Emily Rios) is the
daughter of a Mexican-American family who
runs a storefront church in Echo Park, Los
Angeles. With her fifteenth-birthday
approaching, all she can think about is her
boyfriend, her Quinceañera dress, and the
Hummer Limo she hopes will carry her on her
special day. But a few months before the
celebration, Magdalena falls pregnant. As
the elaborate preparations for her
Quinceañera proceed, it is only a matter of
time before her religious father finds out
and rejects her. Forced out of her home,
Magdalena moves in with great-great uncle
Tomas (Chalo Gonzalez), an old man who makes
his living selling champurrado (a Mexican
hot drink) in the street. Already living
with him is Carlos (Jesse Garcia),
Magdalena's cousin, a tough cholo who was
thrown out by his parents. Carlos does not
disguise his disapproval of Magdalena's
arrival. The back house rental where Tomas
has lived happily for many years is on a
property that was recently purchased by an
affluent white gay couple (David W. Ross and
Jason L. Wood) — pioneers of gentrification
in the neighborhood. Inevitably, worlds
collide when they become entangled in the
lives of their tenants. As Magdalena's
pregnancy grows more visible, she, Carlos,
and Tomas pull together as a family of
outsiders. But the economics of the
neighborhood are turning against them.
Ultimately, this precipitates a crisis that
threatens their way of life.
