The Motel

Thirteen-year-old Asian-American Ernest Chin lives and works at his single mother's seedy no-tell motel buried on a strip of desolate suburban nowhere. Misunderstood by his family and blindly careening into puberty, Ernest befriends Sam Kim, a self-destructive yet charismatic Korean man who has checked into the motel to entertain a string of prostitutes. Sam teaches the fatherless boy the assorted rites of manhood. In English and Cantonese with English subtitles. 75 minutes R.
