Summary
  • A Thousand Years of Good Prayers is a small chamber piece about the intricacies of family and the complexities of lives connected to two countries. In other words, it's ideal subject matter for director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club), a frequent specialist in such material. This one's set in an all-American small city where an all-American woman (Faye Yu) is visited by her very Chinese father (Henry O)
  • The Princess of Nebraska involves an aggressively modern 18-year-old Chinese woman, Sasha, who is four months pregnant from a fling back in Beijing. Interrupting her first year of college in Nebraska, she travels to San Francisco to abort the child and confront her lover's male friend. Sasha's unborn baby takes her on a daring journey from Beijing to the streets of San Francisco, where her experiences make her think twice
