lady bird was so good and relatable but i am SO frustrated at the endless stream of white kid coming of age movies that it really dampens how much i’d’ve enjoyed this film. my life is interesting too but nobody would watch a movie about it unless it had flashbacks to how much my family suffered during the cultural revolution and/or at tiananmen square. also timothée chalamet has a horrendous jawline

There’s a similar problem with English language memoirs about China, it’s always about Cultural Revolution, Mao and Tiananmen too.
