The 25th Annual Asian American Showcase Closing Night Feature:
DEALING WITH DAD with director Tom Huang in-person for Q&A at Gene Siskel Film Center (164 N State St, Chicago, IL 60601).
The Chang siblings live vastly different lives: Margaret is a perfectionist, Roy is sad about his divorce, and Larry has no interest in leaving his parents’ house. When Margaret gets word that their dad isn’t acting like himself and has barely gone out, she decides to take matters into her own hands and drags Roy along with her in the process. The siblings and their dad haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, with Margaret getting the brunt of their father’s anger and disappointment. As they try to figure out what to do, they begin to remember experiences they had growing up, which in turn brings them closer together than ever before. Filled with humor and heart, DEALING WITH DAD is a case study on relationships of all kinds and what we have to do to protect them. Chicago premiere.
