Lucky Grandma (2020)

Comedy 1h 27m

AroView: Veteran Chinese actress Tsai Chin (THE JOY LUCK CLUB) plays a cranky, chain-smoking, 86-year-old Grandma in this feisty comedy set in New York’s Chinatown.

After spending her life making an honest living and still not being able to afford her apartment, she steals a bag of cash from the Chinese Mafia and quickly finds herself in over her head. Boasting an all-female crew of filmmakers, this is a refreshing film uniquely posed to shift the mainstream appetite.

A love letter to Chinatown and an homage to all the badass elderly women who inhabit it.

“Though the flavors of past genres are present in Lucky Grandma, all those ingredients add up to a truly unique, unforgettable dish that brings a familiar formula to a whole new level.” ~ Hoai-Tran Bui, Slashfilm.
