This was a stunning movie
28 September 2014 | by blackhat012See all my reviews

I cried, I laughed. I totally related to the entire story. How Asian parents can be so controlling, no matter how old you are. I think I saw my dad in there somewhere, like the words had come straight from his mouth. Cissy, the main character faced a lot of the challenges that I dealt with growing up and still do. How we all try to be perfect and it explodes in our face sometimes. The secrets families keep and try to hide that bubble up to the surface only to be pushed down again. I can only hope that I have the courage to come out and tell it like it is when the time comes, if it ever comes.

God you have to see this movie!
