About the Movie
How do you celebrate the life of a madcap Chinese matriarch? With a customary multi-day funeral grudgingly pulled together by four surly siblings in this comedy-drama. The Xiao children assemble in Seattle to morn their deceased mom, a spitfire hellion they quietly called 'The Dragon Lady.' But with a traditional Asian funeral spreading over seven days, the berating of their mother’s memory may lead to profound appreciation for her during their bereavement. Starring Bai Ling, Steph Song, Talia Shire, Julia Nickson and Lisa Lu. Directed by Anna Chi; screenplay by Donald Martin.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: So jaw-droppingly misguided in its blend of mawkish sentiment and comic relief that it almost elicits one's grudging admiration.
Rotten: Director Anna Chi's Chinese-American family drama, from a screenplay by Donald Martin, is ambitious in scope and banal in execution.
