Faye Yu in A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

2007 NR

Director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) returns to his indie roots with this moving film about an older Chinese man who comes to America to visit the recently divorced daughter he barely knows. Making unwelcome efforts to become closer with his daughter (Faye Yu), Mr. Shi (Henry O) snoops through her belongings and forces her into uncomfortable conversations in an attempt to piece together why her marriage fell apart.
