Falling for Grace: The Feel Good Movie this Summer
"Falling for Grace" is a wonderful film that pulls on all those heart strings and is the perfect film for the entire family. My young daughters enjoyed it just as much as their grandparents. I loved the story line and the fact that the character, Grace is an intelligent, successful woman.
This movie is more than just a romantic comedy with a predictable ending. It provides a window to the life in Chinatown and the struggles around race, class, and gender. The most enduring parts of the film are Grace's relationship with her family. I could relate to Grace's connection with her parents, her challenges in the corporate world, and her childhood dreams and desires to shine.
Finally a film that stars an Asian American actor. Considering this is Fay Lee's first feature film, I think she did an incredible job. This movie far exceeds Maid in Manhattan...better story line, believable characters, and more depth. If you want to experience an uplifting and wonderful film, go see "Falling for Grace", you'll love it.
