Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer’s tale follows teenage cousins struggling with love and sexuality in L.A.’s predominantly Latino Echo Park, while also weaving in stories of the hood’s gentrification and a home-owning gay couple not unlike the filmmakers themselves. The movie won a Grand Jury Prize and an Audience Award at Sundance this year, and though the duo — who moved to Echo Park five years ago — were thrilled, they were just happy not to have pissed off their neighbors. According to Westmoreland, ”We wanted to celebrate aspects of the neighborhood that gentrification was pushing out.”
