Watch Mina Shum’s Double Happiness on the big screen at Revue Cinema
Reel Asian is co-presenting a screening of writer/director Mina Shum’s Double Happiness with We Really Like Her.
A sweet coming-of-age film, Double Happiness follows 20-something Jade Li (Sandra Oh) who struggles to find the balance between the life she wants and the life her traditional Chinese parents desire for her. In an effort to encourage their daughter to start a family, Jade’s parents set her up on a series of dates with nice, traditional Chinese boys, but Jade is not interested. When she meets a Caucasian grad student named Mark (Callum Rennie), she has to decide how much her own happiness is worth.
The screening is hosted by Emily Gagne and Danita Steinberg, hosts of the podcast We Really Like her.
