So cool
19 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so great! It's about assimilation into American culture, and not assimilation in an "International" city, like SF or NY or LA or Chicago, but St. Louis, MO (actually shot there). Really great acting, interesting story. But I might be biased bc I went to the premiere. :)

If you can locate a copy of this film, definitely watch it.
