Saving Face

CAST: Joan Chen, Michelle Krusiec. Lynn Chen DIRECTOR: Alice Wu SILVER SCREEN SOCIETY | May 17-23, 2024

Wil (Michelle Krusiec) is a lesbian, but she not dare tell her widowed mother, Hwei-lan (Joan Chen), or her very traditional grandparents. She's shocked, however, to find out she's not the only one in her family with romantic secrets when she learns that her 48-year-old mother is pregnant. Unwilling to reveal who the father is, Hwei-lan is kicked out of her parents' home and must move in with Wil, which puts a strain on Wil's budding relationship with openly gay Vivian (Lynn Chen).

There are moments that are laugh-out-loud, but more importantly, there are times you can't pry the smile off your face simply in anticipation of what comes next.

Why do rom-coms always get happy endings, and not family dramas? With Saving Face, Wu dares to ask: Why not both?
