Ms. Purple is a poignant drama about Asian American sister and brother, Kasie (Tiffany Chu) and Carey (Teddy Lee), who were raised and are now seemingly stuck in Koreatown, Los Angeles. Abandoned by their mother and brought up by their father, the siblings continue to struggle with deep emotional wounds from the difficulty of the parental dynamic. Now, with their father on his death bed, the estranged Carey comes home to help Kasie care for him. As they reunite over their dying father, Kasie and Carey confront their shared past, attempting to mend their relationship. Ms. Purple is directed by Korean-American actor / filmmaker Justin Chon, director of the films Man Up and Gook previously. The screenplay is written by Justin Chon, co-written by Chris Dinh. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Oscope will open Chon's Ms. Purple in select theaters starting September 6th. Visit their official website.
