Kevin P. Farley,
Grace Tang, an ambitious banker from working class Chinatown falls in love with New York's most eligible bachelor, Andrew Barrington, Jr. The only problem is that he thinks she's an heiress from Hong Kong. It is only through her search for fairy tale love that Grace re-discovers her own identity and realizes what really matters in life.
All aspects of the production were extremely well done. This is an indie that was put together by big kids who know their business. Things like camera work, editing, lighting and sound were really paid due attention. Also impressive were sets, costuming and especially casting and acting. I don't often see this, but all the moving parts (people, places and things) meshed together beautifully. The director and editor both did a superb job.
The only thing I can reasonably gripe about is that the music choices got sappy at times. But, it's a romantic comedy not my usual neighborhood.
As to the Whole Package, I left the theater feeling my ten bucks was well spent. But, it's one of those movies that I like better the more it rattles about in my brain. Which it won't. stop. doing. Oh no! As I suggested earlier this isn't my usual fare; but this one is a charmer. If it's in your quadrant, check it out.
