In this 1993 film adaptation of Amy Tan’s bestselling novel, a Chinese American daughter is asked to take her late mother’s place at a weekly mahjong game, where a group of immigrant women have been gathering to share their stories since immigrating to the United States following World War II. Having only a passing interest in her heritage at first, June eventually learns, along with the daughters of the three other mahjong players, to appreciate the struggles endured by the previous generation.

Directed by Wayne Wang and starring Ming-Na Wen, Tamlyn Tomita, Lauren Tom, and Rosalind Chao. Rated R.
