Double Happiness

A 22-year-old aspiring Chinese actress (Sandra Oh) living in a North American city with her parents and younger sister has to choose between her ambitions and traditional family loyalties. I wouldn't call this 1994 Canadian comedy an unqualified success (some of the acting is uneven, for instance), but I learned a whole lot more about Chinese family traditions from this picture than from the middle-class crowd-pleasing The Wedding Banquet, and director Mina Shum kept me pretty amused and entertained besides. With Stephen Chang, Frances You, and Allanah Ong. 87 min.
