Snow Flower And The Secret Fan
Snow Flower And The Secret Fan TrailerFrom the director of "The Joy Luck Club," Wayne Wang, comes a movie based on another best selling novel about girlfriends and women in the Orient.
Inspired by the bestselling novel Snow Flower And The Secret Fan by Lisa See, the movie of the same name is a timeless portrait of female friendship. In 19th-century China, seven-year-old girls Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong - or "old sames" - bound together for eternity. Isolated by their families, they furtively communicate by taking turns writing in a secret language, nu shu, between the folds of a white silk fan. In a parallel story in present day Shanghai, the laotong's descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers, complicated love lives, and a relentlessly evolving Shanghai. Drawing on the lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection, hidden from them in the folds of the antique white silk fan, or risk losing one another forever. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.
