Coming at October 23, 2020 in theaters
A Korean American man cares for his ailing mother while trying to master her traditional cooking in the latest from Wayne Wang, based on Chang-rae Lee’s New Yorker short story.
Based on the personal essay by award-winning Korean-American author Chang-rae Lee (Native Speaker), the latest from veteran director Wayne Wang — last at the Festival in 2007 with A Thousand Years of Good Prayers and The Princess of Nebraska — is a profoundly moving exploration of family, identity, and inheritance.
Upon learning that his mother’s cancer is advancing, Chang-rae (Justin Chon) takes a leave of absence from his job in New York and travels to San Francisco to be with his parents. Struggling to contain a deluge of unruly emotions, Chang-rae busies himself with as many nursing tasks as possible, even though his mother (Jackie Chung) insists on maintaining her independence.
The film released at September 7, 2019 on Toronto International Film Festival.
