Goofs

A scene shows some Chinese cooks being forced to cook a quick meal for some drunken miners after they told them the kitchen was closed. When asked what it was called, they quickly came up with Chop Suey.

While the story is similar to that of real life, it actually happened in San Francisco, not the Cold Country. See more »

User Reviews

 
Visually stunning, strong female lead!
20 November 2017 | by LillyroweSee all my reviews

After having seen Detroit, which focuses on some really heavy history, I came across The Jade Pendant , which also focuses on some awful history, I was very moved by the amount of time we got to meet these characters, be interested in them and then fall in love. The landscape of this only adds to the story which follows across a very talented cast.
