Critics reviews

Chin’s performance moves so seamlessly between registers of comedy and drama, naturalism and parody, even while staying firmly within the outlines of an archetype, that one is reminded of Shirley MacLaine’s Aurora Greenway in Terms of Endearment, another movie mother whose larger-than-life gestures are just momentary flashes of a racing mind at work.
