Home Song Stories

Home Song Stories is the story of Rose (Joan Chen), a glamorous Shanghai nightclub singer, who struggles to survive in seventies Australia with two young children. Based on writer/director Tony Ayres' own life, this is an epic tale of mothers and sons, mothers and daughters, unrequited love, betrayal and secrets. The film plays in the Contemporary World Cinema program.

I've liked Joan Chen since "Twin Peaks". I like stories where characters may be "out of their element." Variety gave it a strong review as it played in Berling.
