Did You Know?

The director's dog, Edison, was originally cast in the film. However, he was too unruly (biting and barking at the crew) and had to be replaced by the neighbors' dog, a well-behaved Shih Tzu named Lucky.See more »

Great and different movie, 12 July 2006
Author: jewlia827 from United States

This movie is great and has a lot of heart. It focuses on one Asian American family, and of course, each family member has a distinct personality and set of issues. Red Doors is able to touch on these different characters and themes in a substantial and meaningful way. You walk away from the film feeling moved and that it did justice to all the characters and issues they dealt with. Additionally, this movie represents several groups that often do not receive much attention or coverage in Hollywood. For instance, minority groups, specifically Asian Americans are not a prevalent group in film today. Lesbians also do not have many positive representations of them on screen. This movie, however, is able to address both of these groups as well as other issues in a deep and moving way. Everyone should see this movie!
