Storyline

Red Doors tells the story of the Wongs, a bizarrely dysfunctional Chinese-American family living in the New York suburbs. Ed Wong has just retired and plots to escape his mundane life. However, the tumultuous, madcap lives of his three rebellious daughters change his plans. The eldest daughter, Samantha, is an ambitious businesswoman in Manhattan who suddenly gets cold feet about her upcoming marriage when she runs into an old high school flame. Julie, the shy middle sister, finds her life as a studious medical student turned upside down when she falls for a movie starlet visiting the hospital. Katie, the youngest sister, is a disaffected high school senior who engages in a continually escalating and dangerous prank war with her longtime neighbor and nemesis, Simon. Ultimately, Ed's disappearance compels each daughter to examine her own understanding of the role and connection she has to the family. At the same time, the Wongs learn to live their own lives outside the invisible fences... Written by Blanc de Chine

I laughed
6 December 2006 | by vfullartSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. The characters were fun and the end left you in a good place. I just wish that you could have seen more of the mother. There that is the worst I have to say about this film. Everything else is just wonderful. The characters (except mom) are well rounded, the pilot believable and well paced, and the filming style a joy to watch. When you laugh out loud when you're by yourself you know you have a winner. Not to mention...Mia Riverton is very easy on the eyes.

I was upset when I couldn't see this film in theaters. I was overjoyed when the producers decided to make it available for renting online. This is going to be a big step for independent films. So go do your part to support this film. I promise you won't to sorry.
