Saving Face

A Special Valentine’s Day Event!

This 2004 romantic comedy is the perfect Valentine’s Day treat for valentines of all ethnicities and sexual preferences! “In this culture-clashing comedy, a mother ashamed of her daughter’s homosexuality becomes in turn the shame of her father when at age 48, after the death of her husband, she gets pregnant by an unnamed source. What unfurls is a far wittier rendition of MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING with a lesbian-Chinese twist. Novice director Alice Wu delivers the cross-cutting humor (gender, generation, culture, sexual orientation, and race) with gaiety and bite, Krusiec and Lynn Chen form a palpable bond, and Joan Chen has never been more radiant.”—Boston Phoenix. In English and in Mandarin and Shanghaiese with English subtitles. R. 91 Min.
