A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

This new film from director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) is a modest but finely observed portrait of a father/daughter relationship. Mr. Shi (Henry O) is a retired widower who moves from Beijing to the United States to help his only daughter through a painful divorce. Disappointed in his efforts to save his daughter's marriage, Mr. Shi explores the small town in which she lives and ends up befriending a elderly woman who fled the Iranian Revolution decades earlier. In English, Mandarin and Farsi with English subtitles. 82 minutes
