Rec. #163 (abbrev.): East Is East
What: Manchester, England, 1971, comedy/drama, semi-autobiographical, seven children (six boys and one girl---Kalinda from The Good Wife), cross-cultural tensions, Royal Tenenbaums aesthetic vibe, very traditional father, rebellions big and small
Representative quote: "We should have a whip-round and get Dad repatriated."
