Didi (2024, D: Wang) S: Izaac Wang, Joan Chen

For anyone who’s ever been a teenager. Watch the trailer for Dėdi (弟弟), a film by Sean Wang. Winner of the Special Jury and Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival. Only in theaters July 26.

Dėdi (弟弟) is written and directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sean Wang. The film is set in 2008 in the Bay Area, and is a funny, irreverent, and affecting ode to first-generation teenagers navigating the joy and chaos of adolescence as seen through the lens of a 13-year-old Taiwanese American boy, played by Izaac Wang (Good Boys, Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon). At its premiere in competition at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival it received critical and audience acclaim, winning both the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award and the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Best Ensemble Cast.
This was my second favorite film I saw during Sundance.

Wang's Oscar nominated short film, Nǎi Nai & Wāi Pó, is available on Disney+.

An understanding, Taiwanese non-tiger mom? I call shenanigans.

Looks decent, will give it a shot.

I wouldn't go that far to say that.

My Taiwanese mother-in-law is quite personable
I've been told she mellowed out a little over time, but she always had her head in the clouds

Thanks for posting this dex14 . Hadn't heard about it, but definitely want to check it out.
