About the Movie

For 10 years Mei Mei (Zhu Lin), a 16 yr old Chinese orphan, dreams of meeting her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce) and his ‘perfect family’. When her orphanage travels to Australia to attend the Australian Choir Festival Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds, however, is far from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched and disconnected the two begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Innocence meets experience, unconvincingly, in the strained redemption drama "33 Postcards." – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, May 17, 2013

Rotten: The script's programmatic feel-goodery smooths out everything strange and noteworthy about Dean and Mei Mei's relationship into an unmemorable and unconvincing blandness. – Inkoo Kang, Village Voice, May 14, 2013

Rotten: There's no explaining the presence of Guy Pearce in Pauline Chan's sappy, atonal family drama. But it's easy enough to understand why he looks so uncomfortable throughout. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, May 16, 2013

Rotten: Just when you think it can't get any more sentimental or tack on any more plot detours, the film attempts a clumsy cultural detente as the Chinese children's choir sings "Waltzing Matilda." – Rex Reed, New York Observer, May 15, 2013

A sweet film

33 Postcards is a touching film about putting another person's needs before your own. Guy Pearce's performance was perfection and despite the "tear-jerk" vibe, it ends well. I'm not usually one for dramas but I loved it!
