Check out the trailer for Wayne Wang’s latest film, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan!
The director, who worked on 1993’s The Joy Luck Club, brings Lisa See’s bestselling novel of the same name to the big screen.
Synopsis: In 19th-century China, 7-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 and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. 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.
The drama, which stars Hugh Jackman, Bingbing Li, Gianna Jun, and Vivian Wu, hits theaters July 15!
