I found this to be a very touching film about a Chinese-American family that makes new discoveries about themselves when they take a vacation together. VV Dachin Hsu, the writer-director, must be applauded for having the strength to write and produce a film about a Chinese- American family, and if more people had her vision, then maybe there would be more and better roles for all Asian - American actors. The cast in My American Vacation, are all proven veterans of film and stage that help bring the story to life. We feel their pain, we feel their joy. Their acting coupled with an evocative and inventive score, composed by Joel Iwataki, has me waiting in anticipation of Ms. Hsu's next film.
