Movie Info

One of the few American films to deal with the tragic story of the internment of Asian-Americans during World War II, Come See the Paradise opens in the late 1930s, as Jack McGurn (Dennis Quaid) is working as a union organizer in New York City. Jack finds himself on the wrong side of the law after he gets involved in an ill-advised bombing of a scab shop, and he flees to Los Angeles, where Hiroshi Kawamura (Sab Shimono) gives him a job as a projectionist in L.A.'s Little Tokyo. Jack soon meets

A love story set against the internment of Japanese Americans following Pearl Harbor.

Unfocused, overly dramatic, and all over the map; the ostensible subject deserves a much better treatment.

Seriously underrated work from Dennis Quaid and Alan Parker.

Audience Reviews for Come See the Paradise

A good drama portraying racial tensions Japanese Americans, and their families, faced during World War II. Really good movie. Early days of Dennis Quaid....some really great acting here on his part.

FANTASTIC!!
