I Fell for Grace
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film had its Arizona premiere near my hometown, in Lakeside, AZ. By a strange turn of events, I now find myself doing a kind of bootlegging marketing campaign for a film that desperately needs some more attention. So here goes:

Falling for Grace is the story of Grace Tang — a street-smart business gal — who meets Andrew Barrington Jr., son of a high-profile businessman at a high-society event. While stepping lightly around other socialites, Grace is mistaken for Grace Tang, a wealthy woman who owns "Shanghai Tang," a boutique on Madison Ave. Here Chinatown and the Cinderella story collide.

The content stews together into a rather atypical romantic comedy. The Chinese overtones of the film are multi-faceted, from an anti-sweatshop subplot to the hilarious and highly believable conversations between Grace, her brother Ming and her parents. Nearly a quarter of the dialogue — and some of the funniest scenes in the film — was delivered in Cantonese and subtitled in English.

This was just a fabulous little movie, one had the feel of a big-bucks feature with the unpredictability of an indie film. The cast was great and the character development had the right mix of believable dialogue, family interaction and jokes in Cantonese.

In short, this film was well-written, witty, and slyly sweet.
