The Joy Luck Club, presents the stories of four Chinese-immigrant women and their American-born daughters. Each of the four Chinese women has her own view of the world based on her experiences in China and wants to share that vision with her daughter. The daughters try to understand and appreciate their mothers' pasts, adapt to the American way of life, and win their mothers' acceptance.
The Joy Luck Club (1993) For me this is the crème de la crème of movies to watch with your BFFs or your mother/daughter. Wonderful story of four women and their daughters, their tragedies and triumphs, their strengths and their weaknesses.
