The Joy Luck Club took the movie-watching (and book-reading) world by surprise, so the latest release from that film’s director, called Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, is likely to do the same. That’s why we’re giving away one brand-new Blu-ray Disc version of the movie right here, just in time to celebrate all things “snowy” for the season.
In Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, inspired by Lisa See’s best-selling novel of the same name, two female friends named Lily and Snow Flower are brought together in a Laotong friendship — a lifelong bond between two women who rely on each other for companionship and comfort in 19th Century China. Amid the civil unrest and gender discrimination of the era, the pair deals with life’s hardships together until they are separated by marriage and childbirth. As sworn sisters, however, the women continue to communicate through the secret Chinese language of nushu, hiding their stories and messages within the folds of delicate silk fans.
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 and complicated love lives. Drawing on lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection or risk losing one another forever. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart but everlasting in the notions of love, hope and friendship.
