In brief: Stranded in Canton (2014) Tribeca 2015
Based on the lives of the actors the film is a mix of documentary and drama that is okay. Neither bad not exceptional the film just sort of is, something that is the result of its hybrid nature which really doesn't allow it to soar in the ways that wholly documentaries or wholly fiction films can.
Probably the most amazing thing about the film is that i have so little to say about it. Yes it looks good, yes the characters are interesting but the film just sort of was there on the screen not really something I could engage with.
