Storyline

Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) a 16 yr old Chinese orphan dreams of nothing more than being part of the 'perfect' family. When her orphanage travels to Australia to par-take in The Australian Choir Festival Mei Mei takes the opportunity to find her Australian Sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). However what she finds is far from what he depicted. Initially mismatched and disconnected the two begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance.

horrible, absolutely horrible.....
13 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this film is such a shallow and childish film. i was fooled by the several high praises of the reviews and decided to give a try. but once the film started, we immediately felt that it was nothing but a very pretentious and very shallow film with very bad casting (the Chinese cast), very weak and unnatural script with stupid dialog and unconvincing scenario and plot twists. but what we felt most unacceptable was those Chinese actors, that mei mei cast was definitely one of the worst choices we've ever seen. she looked so pretentious, yet at the same time, so unnaturally ugly with a very unwelcoming downward thick lips mouth, shockingly unnatural low droopy long chin(an overdone bad Korean plastic surgery job?), so long and so pointed downward like the witch in 'snow white and the seven dwarfs' and her acting was extremely horrible. the female Chinese orphanage caretaker's acting was also so pretentious and rigid. the storyline also turned into more contrite and unconvincing when the locality shifted to down under Australia. the storyline about the Australian part was even more stupid and awkward, the loan shark part and the prison part only rendered deeper awkwardness. guy pearce had tried very hard to sink into the character he played, but often over done it. the thugs in jail and the car stealing thugs, the living terror who controlled inside the prison and the outside illegal activities only gave people a small localized group of thugs, not big-deal crime boss. this is a horrible film, i have to constantly use 'fast forward' to speed up the viewing, otherwise..well.
