Good coming of age movie
13 March 2021 | by EggoreluckadmanSee all my reviews

Exactly what you expect in a coming of age film but with the style and substance of asian culture and director Eddie Huang's perspective. Good performances as well from the entire cast. Only issue I had was the ending felt anticlimactic and a very "Hollywood" ending
