Ron Berrett in An American in China

An American in China

2008 PG-13

Twentysomething David Braddock (James Snyder) is fresh out of Stanford and aimlessly traveling the world, until a chance encounter with Mei (Sun Fei Fei), a beautiful Chinese woman, sends his life spinning in a new direction. Lushly filmed on location in Beijing, writer-director Ron Berrett's romantic coming-of-age story paints a picture of a young man whose expectations are upended as he learns what it means to live and love.
