Summary Academy Award Winner Ang Lee (*The Life of Pi*, *Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon*) made his directorial debut with this acclaimed drama about an elderly Tai chi master's struggles to fit into American society. Having just moved from Beijing, elderly Tai chi master Mr. Chu struggles to adjust to life in New York, living with his Americanized son Alex. Chu immediately butts heads with his put-upon white daughter-in-law, Martha, a writer who seems to blame him for her own paralyzing inability to focus. But when Chu begins teaching Tai chi at a local school, his desire to make a meaningful connection comes to fruition in the most unexpected of ways. Winner of Best Leading Actor (Sihung Lung) and Best Supporting Actress (Lai Wang) and nominated for Best Film and Best Director at the **Golden Horse Film Festival**.
