Twist
9 August 1999 | by (Virginia Beach,Virginia) – See all my reviews

It's a nice little film with a twist on culture clash. Julian Lee, an Asian raised by African-Americans, happens to be more black than his African American girlfriend from the suburbs. May, a Chinese exchange student, learns that African Americans are not what they appear to be in the movies. Interesting fare.
