Cora Miao in Dim Sum: A Little Bit of Heart

Dim Sum: A Little Bit of Heart

1985 PG

Set in San Francisco's Chinese community, director Wayne Wang's low-key comedy chronicles the changing relationship between widowed Mrs. Tam (Kim Chew) and her single, 30-year-old daughter, Geraldine (Laureen Chew). Believing she won't live to see another birthday, Mrs. Tam would like Geraldine -- who still lives at home -- to tie the knot soon. Is she reluctant to wed out of concern for her aging mother, or is it an aversion to tradition?
