In Elizabeth Peña’s (Rush Hour, The Incredibles) last role before her passing, the veteran actress stars in a comedy about body switching in ANA MARIA IN NOVELA LAND.

Elizabeth Peña plays Ana Maria's mom in this body-switching comedy. Ana Maria, switches places with her favorite telenovela star, Ariana Tomosa. Starring Edy Ganem in a breakout, dual role as both Ana Maria and Ariana Tomosa, the film centers around Ana Maria, a typical 20-something who is living life on her own terms but frustrating her family and friends all the while doing so. As she journeys inside a world of seemingly limitless opportunities in “Novela Land,” things get heated during a love affair with a wealthy businessman and his younger, sexy son. Meanwhile, Ariana is forced to deal with the harsh realities of living in Los Angeles with an over-protective but loving family. As each of these women navigate their new lives, they come to the realization that love and true faith in themselves is all they really needed to have the life they dreamed of.
ANA MARIA IN NOVELA LAND opens February 27, 2015 and also stars Luis Guzmán.
