Worth Watching - April 15: The Children of Huang Shi Trailer
This trailer came out of nowhere. I didn't even know The Children of Huang Shi existed until I heard about this trailer, but after watching it, I'm sold. I'm very curious to find out more and am already looking forward to seeing it. This indie film is about a young British journalist, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who saves a group of orphaned children during the Japanese occupation of China in 1937. The cast is impressive: Rhys Meyers, Radha Mitchell, Chow Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh. I suggest that you do not skip over this. Something about Rhys Meyers' performance really has me captivated. Plus the appearance of David Wenham, albeit brief, also has me interested. Let us know what you think.
