"33 Postcards."

This month, Cinema Asian America on Xfinity On Demand presents the lauded Chinese Australian drama, “33 Postcards.” Written and directed by Pauline Chan and starring Guy Pierce and Zhu Lin, “33 Postcards” tells the story of a Mei Mei (Lin), a Chinese orphan who dreams of meeting her Australian sponsor – Dean Randall (Pierce) – and his ‘perfect family’.

At 16, when her orphanage travels to Australia to attend the Australian Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds, however, is far from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched and disconnected – the two begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance.
