Storyline

Red Doors tells the story of the Wongs, a bizarrely dysfunctional Chinese-American family living in the New York suburbs. Ed Wong has just retired and plots to escape his mundane life. However, the tumultuous, madcap lives of his three rebellious daughters change his plans. The eldest daughter, Samantha, is an ambitious businesswoman in Manhattan who suddenly gets cold feet about her upcoming marriage when she runs into an old high school flame. Julie, the shy middle sister, finds her life as a studious medical student turned upside down when she falls for a movie starlet visiting the hospital. Katie, the youngest sister, is a disaffected high school senior who engages in a continually escalating and dangerous prank war with her longtime neighbor and nemesis, Simon. Ultimately, Ed's disappearance compels each daughter to examine her own understanding of the role and connection she has to the family. At the same time, the Wongs learn to live their own lives outside the invisible fences... Written by Blanc de Chine

different, classy debut film
21 September 2006 | by LaoWombat1See all my reviews

A gentle, thoughtful film. Interestingly quirky characters, although, like the Joy Luck Club or the Soong Sisters or Wing Chun (grin) the male characters are fairly much peripheral to the story either because the actors don't have much to do or couldn't do very much with what they had. But there are plenty of male centered films out there. This is a change of pace.

And pace is the right word, this film unfolds gradually, gracefully, and, despite the quirkiness of its characters (a teenager who conducts romance with explosives, e.g.)in a very natural, easy going style.

It does not have a Hollywood ending, sad and wistful instead, but satisfying nonetheless.
