“An outrageously funny, unquestionably cool black comedy.” – Hoai-Tran Bui, Slash Film

In the heart of New York’s Chinatown, an ornery, chain-smoking, newly widowed 80-year-old Grandma (Tsai Chin, Casino Royale) is eager to live life as an independent woman, despite the worry of her family. When a local fortune teller (Wai Ching Ho, Hustlers) predicts a most auspicious day in her future, Grandma decides to head to the casino and goes all in, only to land herself on the wrong side of luck… suddenly attracting the attention of some local gangsters. Desperate to protect herself, Grandma employs the services of a bodyguard from a rival gang and soon finds herself right in the middle of an outrageous Chinatown gang war.  A surprisingly heartfelt, darkly comic crime thriller with a stand-out performance by Tsai Chin, Lucky Grandma is the feature directorial debut of Sasie Sealy, featuring a new song by Awkwafina. (Dir. by Sasie Sealy, 2019, USA, in Cantonese/Mandarin with English subtitles, 100 mins., Not Rated)
