Chung's script runs the Yi family through hardships, both financial and marital, while also displaying David's child's-eye view of life in the South. Chung's direction captures the details of life in Reagan's America.
An incredibly full, moving piece that works so well on so many levels. The humor, the heart, the stakes are high throughout, and there's a real delicacy to the way everything is captured to ensure a deep level of investment.
Chung's fifth film sings with the expertise of a seasoned filmmaker, to be sure, but it also feels like the kind of energetic, exuberant, deeply personal film that would mark a bright newcomer's debut.
Chung is very, very comfortable dealing with the grey areas found within his protagonists, and allows his incredibly strong cast to explore the depths of their feelings, no matter if it winds up in some uncomfortable places.
