Freckled Rice
This is a story of Joe Soo, a 13-year-old boy coming of age and coming to terms with his Chinese America heritage in Boston during the 1960s. His Boston encompasses Screamin' Jay Hawkins, the Kennedy years, "My Three Sons" and rock 'n' roll. It is a world his older brother has readily embraced and one his immigrant father fails to comprehend. An excellently executed drama, full of streetwise humor and insight.
Reviews
"This beautiful, ruminative odyssey captures indelibly the trauma of generations of immigrants whose concepts of the family conflict with our free-spirited culture." - David Edelstein, The Village Voice
