"The Joy Luck Club" is a beautiful film, rich in the Asian culture. Through a series of flashbacks, young Chinese women born in the United States and their mothers born in China, give us a look into their heart-wrenching past.. The mother/daughter relationship is bent, but not broken.

"The Joy Luck Club" is one of my all-time favorite films.  We celebrate it with our Joyous Asian Chicken, that is full of rich flavors, but a "Healthy Delight." Fast, inexpensive, gourmet quality, and with all the love our ladies of "The Joy Luck Club" can bring.
