The Soong Sisters (1996)
"Once upon a time in distant China, there were three sisters. One loved money, one loved power, and one loved her country." So opens this historical, melodramatic chronicle of the influential lives of three daughters from one of pre-Communist China's wealthiest families.

The oldest daughter Ai-ling married industrialist H.H. Kung, a wealthy and powerful man who eventually became Hong Kong's finance minister. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for The Soong Sisters
An interesting movie that centralizes on the lives of the Soong sisters: Ching-Ling, May-Ling, and Ai-Ling. This film follows the sisters' progress from attending school in America to the individual marriages that they enter, and the various plights that they encounter throughout their lives.
Great cast- Maggie Cheung, Vivian Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Jiang Wen, Elaine Jin, Winston Chao, Hsing-kuo Wu, and Niu Zhenhua. Worth seeing!
