The Chinese-American filmmaker Wayne Wang made his bones with edgy indie fare in the 1980s, including Chan is Missing, before moving on to more mainstream ethnocentric work such as Eat a Bowl of Tea and The Joy Luck Club and such indie hits as Smoke and Blue in the Face. More recently, he's been doing humdrum Hollywood stuff like Maid in Manhattan and Last Holiday. So this project, a period piece about two Chinese girls in the 19th century, would seem to be something of a return to his roots.
