this movie is a beautiful scrapbook of secrets. even though i'm not chinese, pakistani culture has a lot of parallels to the kind of expectations women face in their lives and i related immensely, learning the wisdom of taking my own destiny and creating beauty in my life.
I cried a few times during this movie. It was English class so I didn't want to look like a nub.
What stood out to me in the film was the acting. However, I'm afraid, that was it. Cinematography was not spectacular, but it was an adaption of a great book. Plot line was basically, "Party! Flashback... Goes back to party scene! Flashback... Repeat 6 more times!"
