last night we watched Saving Face! Saving Face focuses on Wilhelmina, a young Chinese-American surgeon who is a lesbian, her dancer girlfriend, and her unwed, pregnant mother. It's one of my favorites but man, I forgot the amount of racism in this movie regarding the interactions between Wil's mom and her friend Jay. This racism vanishes little by little as the movie progresses and Wil's mom becomes friends with Jay and overcomes her bias, but still not sure how I feel about it. Though, it IS an accurate portrayal of racism in East-Asian communities.

I did enjoy the overall story line of the movie and how it is equally about Wil's mom's struggle with her pregnancy and romance, as it is about Wil's struggle with her girlfriend, Vivian.

Overall, a good watch and it has comedic value.
