50/50 Movie #1: Long Life, Happiness & Prosperity

Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity

My first movie of the year is an independent film starring Sandra Oh from…uh…Gray’s Anatomy. Is that show still on?

Sandra is a single parent to a 11 or 12 year old girl. The girl, desperate for a change of luck and circumstances for both she and her mother, performs some Chinese magic. Unfortunately, her magic benefits others.

Certain parts of the story were charming and interesting. Others were desperately lacking in subtitles. I have no idea what happened in two of the story lines because all dialogue was in Chinese.  Still, there were clearly tender moments that were beautifully communicated by the actors. One day I’ll look up the translation or find a version with subtitles so I can know the full story.

Fifty/Fifty – Movie – #1
