Once a stalwart of American indie cinema with acclaimed dramas like The Joy Luck Club and Smoke, filmmaker Wayne Wang has been flying under the radar somewhat in recent decades. His latest film, Coming Home Again, sees Wang return to the Asian-American milieu as he adapts a New Yorker essay by the Korean-American writer Chang-rae Lee.

The film stars Justin Chon as a Korean-American who returns to his San Francisco home to care for his increasingly fragile mother (Jackie Chung). Over the course of a day, unresolved family issues come bubbling to the surface.

Speaking about the film, Wang said, "Last year marked the 25th anniversary of The Joy Luck Club and from my perspective, the portrayal of Chinese-American characters over those 25 years has not changed for the better as much as many people today might wish they had. In fact, until very recently, the portrayal of Chinese-American characters on screen has become more stereotypical than ever. This made me decide to focus on doing something authentic with flesh and blood Asian-American characters who have real histories and real problems. I was determined to make Coming Home Again, and make it as authentic as possible."

Coming Home Again is in US cinemas and virtual screenings from October 23rd. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.
