David (a scene-stealing Alan Kim), a seven-year-old with a heart murmur, moves with his parents and sister from California to a mobile home in rural Arkansas. There, his father Jacob plans to start a farm specialising in Korean vegetables, while his mother Monica frets about money. The arrival of Monica’s mother from South Korea, certainly not the grandmother David had in mind, complicates matters further. Gentle, funny and moving, coloured by a child’s viewpoint, it subverts Asian-American stereotyping by immersing its audience in the experience of a family, based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s own story, straining to balance their dreams with survival.

“a gentle, lovely picture, one that acknowledges there really is no ‘immigrant experience,’ beyond the pure human experience of finding yourself adjusting to a new environment.” Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
