Like you and Karen, I have no children, but I was enraptured by the story, the visuals and the music. Such a great movie. I hope it finds/found a wide audience.

I cried a bunch when we watched it. I was so impressed with it that I did some googles because I had to know if it was affiliated with Disney in any way. Some of the songs, especially the ballads, reminded me of Disney songs. & sure enough, the director is a Disney alum that worked on most of the great Disney animation movies like The Little Mermaid. This next bit of info. added even more emotion for me, the writer was a woman who wrote the script as she was dying to help her husband & daughter deal with the transition. What’s really interesting is that the writer was white, so I’m not sure whose idea it was to add the Asian themes, but they did a great job. See the link below, it explains the movie & the tribute that was included for the writer at the end of the movie. Like you all, I loved how the movie richly & unapologetically displayed Asian culture. I recently watched another movie with my daughter, The Guardian Brothers, that seemed like it wanted to do what Over the Moon did for Asian culture, but failed miserably. It was unwatchable. The entire cast was white, including Meryl Streep. The writers were Asian, so it seemed like a situation where a minority got an opportunity but had to cast white actors to get any backing from a studio. As always, thanks so much for you all’s hard work! https://www.republicworld.com/entertainment-news/hollywood-news/over-the-moon-ending-explained-here-is-chinese-myth-the-film-is-based-on.html Katrese Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
