Feature Film Friday: The Joy Luck Club (1993)

Usually, if you’re looking hard enough, you can come across a good movie. Occasionally, you’ll come across a great movie. And rarely you’ll come across a movie like The Joy Luck Club, the kind of movie that has the ability to completely engage its viewers. Because, no matter who you are, one way or another you’ll be able to recognize yourself in at least one of the many memorable characters of The Joy Luck Club. Based off the best-selling novel of the same name by Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club focuses on the lives of four Chinese-American immigrant families and how the past experiences of four mothers guide the present lives of their daughters.

I couldn’t find an actual trailer for this film, but I was able to find one of the JLC’s most memorable scenes:


Scene’s are woven together, seamlessly creating a film that will make you laugh, cry, and consider. Amy Tan’s book was made for the silver screen- excellent directing, casting, and writing has made this movie a must see for anyone interested in a movie with quality heart.
