This comedy/drama deftly weaves a handful of individual stories dripping with infidelity, scandal and family secrets into one thoroughly entertaining narrative of a Chinese American family's reconciliation. The death of a "dragon lady" matriarch elicits varying reactions from her four estranged adult children, none of them grief. The philandering plastic surgeon, the real estate magnate, the single mom with the mixed-race kid and the lesbian kung-fu movie star gather in a Seattle McMansion where the family's longtime housekeeper (Talia Shire) breaks the news that they are in for a seven day traditional Chinese funeral complete with chanting monks.
