Saving Face - 面子
Saving Face (面子) is a 2004 film starring Michelle Krusiec, Joan Chen, and Lynn Chen directed by Alice Wu.
The film's main premise is that Michelle is lesbian and is trying to figure out how to come out in an Chinese-Taiwanese culture that she's in.
This is a coming of age story for Michelle's character, Wil. There are a few back stories and the whole "Face" that I might have been a little influenced by when I was living with my parents.
Support the Asian American films that come out and rent this on Netflix.
