Abstract : Las películas que voy a analizar en este artículo, ¿Qué hace una chica como tú en un sitio como este? (Fernando Colomo, 1978) y Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón (Pedro Almodóvar, 1980), presentan varias similitudes, aunque fueron contextualizadas por la crítica de manera diferente. Estrenadas en el mismo período, por su artificialidad ambas tienen una estética reconocible como 'camp' y tienen como tema central el descubrimiento de 'La Movida' por parte de mujeres de cuarenta años víctimas de la sociedad patriarcal franquista, de la mano de jóvenes participantes del nuevo movimiento. ¿Por qué y qué es lo que hace que dos performances excesivas, que parecen sospechosamente tan familiares, sean contextualizadas de manera tan diferente? Argumentaré que la diferencia en la percepción temporal se basa en las estrategias estéticas que usa cada director al colocar a La Movida en el espacio temporal y ficcional. Los directores difieren en las emociones a las que apelan (el miedo y la alegría), en la estética (el trash, el esperpento, las fantasías que emergen en el género pornográfico y el de horror) y por último en las representaciones de género entre el camp y la identidad queer . The two films I analyse in this article, ¿Qué hace una chica como tú en un sitio como este? (Fernando Colomo, 1978) and Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón (Pedro Almodóvar, 1980) present a number of similarities but have been contextualized by critics in a very different manner. They were both released around the same time, and as a result of their artificiality both share an aesthetic recognizable as 'camp' and have as central theme the discovery of the Spanish Movida by women in their forties, victims of the Francoist patriarchal society, through young men who participate in the Movement. What makes these two excessive performances, which look so suspiciously similar, to be contextualized so differently? I will argue that the difference in the temporal contextualization resides in the aesthetic strategies that each director uses when localizing the Movida in a temporal and fictional space. The directors differ in the emotions to which they appeal (fear and joy), their aesthetic (trash, grotesque, the fantasies that emerge from horror and pornographic genres) and in the representations of gender, between camp and queer identity. This produces dissociation between the films, despite their similarities.

Spanish Language Edition of The Dirty Girls Social Club A vibrant, can't-put-it-down novel of six friends--each one an unforgettable Latina woman in her late '20s--and the complications and triumphs in their lives Inseparable since their days at Boston University almost ten years before, six friends form the Dirty Girls Social Club, a mutual support and (mostly) admiration society that no matter what happens to each of them (and a lot does), meets regularly to dish, dine and compare notes on the bumpy course of life and love. Las sucias are: --Lauren, the resident "caliente" columnist for the local paper, which advertises her work with the line "her casa is su casa, Boston," but whose own home life has recently involved hiding in her boyfriend's closet to catch him in the act --Sara, the perfect wife and mother who always knew exactly the life she wanted and got it, right down to the McMansion in the suburbs and two boisterious boys, but who is paying a hefty price --Amber, the most idealistic and artistic member of the club, who was raised a valley girl without a word of Spanish and whose increasing attachment to her Mexica roots coincides with a major record label's interest in her rock 'n' roll --Elizabeth, the stunning black Latina whose high profile job as a morning television anchor conflicts with her intensely private personal life, which would explain why the dates the other dirty girls set her up on never work out --Rebecca, intense and highly controlled, who flawlessly runs Ella, the magazine she created for Latinas, but who can't explain why she didn't understand the man she married and now doesn't even share a room with; and --Usnavys, irrepressible and larger than life, whose agenda to land the kind of man who can keep her in Manolo Blahniks and platanos almost prevents her seeing true love when it lands in her lap. There's a lot of catching up to do.

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JULIA ROBERTS, OWEN WILSON, AND JACOB TREMBLAY! Over 6 million people have read the #1 New York Times bestseller WONDER and have fallen in love with Auggie Pullman, an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face. The book that inspired the Choose Kind movement. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER, now a #1 New York Times bestseller and included on the Texas Bluebonnet Award master list, begins from Auggie’s point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. "Wonder is the best kids' book of the year," said Emily Bazelon, senior editor at and author of Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope. R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel “a meditation on kindness” —indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship. Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Join the conversation: #thewonderofwonder
