Animation, Romance, SciFi/Fantasy
The rotoscope animation process gives writer-director David Kaplan’s New York Chinatown update of Cinderella an enchanted, hand-painted look to go along with its fairy-tale mood. Vietnamese-American actor An Nguyen (The Brave One) stars as Ye Xian, a new immigrant obligated to work in a massage parlor to pay off her debt while the “cruel stepmother” madam (Tsai Chin from The Joy Luck Club and Memoirs of a Geisha) makes life miserable for her. The talking fish narrator is an especially nice touch. Costarring Ken Leung as Prince Charming and Randall Duk Kim as the Fairy Godmother, here portrayed as a sweat-shop-owning hag (96 min.).
