“A heist movie like this shouldn’t exist. But thank god it does.” – VICE
This comedic crime film gives Tsai Chin (Joy Luck Club) a long-overdue opportunity to shine in a leading role — but it’s audiences who are the truly fortunate ones. In the heart of Chinatown, New York, an ornery, chain-smoking, newly widowed 80-year-old Grandma is eager to live life as an independent woman, despite her concerned family. When a local fortune teller predicts a most auspicious day in her future, Grandma decides to go all in at the casino, only to land herself on the wrong side of luck by 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 a Chinatown gang war. Director Sasie Sealy brings to life a dark comedy about immigrant life, the vulnerabilities of aging, and an unexpected friendship. Set in underground mahjong parlors with a cast of richly drawn characters, LUCKY GRANDMA is a love letter to Chinatown and plays homage to all the badass elderly women who inhabit it.
