Diego (René Alvarado) is a gay but closeted Hispanic chef living in East Los Angeles who works in the restaurant operated by his grandmother (Irene De Bari). Frustrated by the secretive lifestyle he shares with his similarly closeted lover, Pablo (David Berón), Diego finds himself attracted to Wesley (Steve Callahan), one of the openly gay Caucasian men he feels are gentrifying his neighborhood.

Audience Reviews for East Side Story

    This has to be the best reinterpretation of the classic Romeo & Juliet (with a different ending though) I love the play on West Side Story and transformed it into a gay Latino version, it's really well done. The acting was so superb from all the cast memebers, it also has excellent camera works and script. Don't forget the sountrack, simply amazing. The characters all had interesting development over the course of the film. It's a film that focuses on the Latino culture and the family unit. Each one of the characters learnt something from the experience of love, pain, conflict and salvation. Not a master piece but really well done.

    This was a pretty good movie. I would have rated it higher - because the story was good, except a few of the characters were really irritating therefore a lower rating. René Alvarado was good though, I felt that he portrayed his character well. This movie had lots of good conflicts to work out. There was latino vs. white, gay vs. straight, in vs. out. The story was quite good. It was just in the acting that there were parts that lacked and the writing of certain characters wasnt the best. Not bad though.
