A quietly important film
30 March 2019 | by hunter_mSee all my reviews

I hope more films like this are made. Not just because it gave voice to an isolating situation that many immigrant women have lived, but because it was just so surprisingly cute, poignant and funny! I truly loved the gaze of this old chinese lady and the way she continued finding herself, despite such betrayal by a man whom she had given her entire life too. I sometimes enjoy watching the banalities of life tbh. If you're a millennial like me then maybe you're Grandma was little bit of her, if you're older maybe she's your own mother (hopefully you take care of her just as well as her children too - some v heartwarming moments there). I have read + actively observed that some husbands oft have entirely different standards for their daughters than for their wives. This film is a message, a reminder that its never too late to find oneself (outside of who you are to others).
