Springtime in a Small Town
Source: Catholic News Service
Bittersweet post-World War II tale set in rural China where a young doctor (Baiqing Xin) comes to stay with his sickly childhood friend (Jun Wu) only to find him married to the girl (Jingfan Hu) he reluctantly left behind years earlier, which threatens to change the dynamics of their friendship and the couple's marriage. As delicately unfolded by director Tian Zhuangzhuang, the virtues of duty and honor are painfully upheld as each of the three characters and the husband's impressionable teen sister cope with observing tradition and commitment in the face of personal desire. Subtitles. An attempted suicide. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
