My husband and i had the honor of seeing the premiere of FRONT COVER at the Seattle International Film Festival. We actually had free passes and had been looking for a film to see, we settle on FRONT COVER. Neither of us had any idea how enjoyable this film would be. We related to the story as my husband is from China and a fashion designer. The film is very real to life, wonderfully acted and beautifully written. It's one of those special films, without car chases, special effects or a typical Hollywood ending. The film truly stands out against the widely over budgeted films.
One of the lead actors, James Chen, is so outstanding in this film. Again, my husband is who from China, and i, were so surprised that Mr. Chen captured a Chinese accent so well.
Jake Choi, the other male lead, portrayed the Chinese/American attitude almost too well.
After the film was over, we had the honor to meet and talk with the actors and the writer/director. You could feel how proud they are of this film ... as they should be.
