Have you not yet caught Wayne Wang‘s beautiful adaption of Lisa See‘s best-selling novel, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan?
Starring Chinese film queen Li Bing Bing (Audrey’s Summer covergal!) and My Sassy Girl‘s Gianna Jun, the film is a timeless portrait of female friendship.
There’s a whole lot of star power behind the cameras as well. In addition to Joy Luck Club’s Wang direction and See’s writing, media mogul maidens Wendi Murdoch and Florence Sloan producing.
Here’s a synopsis of the film:
In 19th-century China, seven-year-old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong – or “old sames” – bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan.
In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong’s descendants, Nina (Li Bing Bing, who also plays an older Lily) and Sophia (Gianna Jun, who also plays an older Snow Flower), struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever.
What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.
