Red Doors Reviews

January 12, 2007
Not surprisingly, the three Wong sisters and their father could exist in separate movies -- their (short) stories are interesting but not convincingly knit together. Think of Red Doors as a promise, and hope that [director] Georgia Lee keeps it.

Red Doors feels like a first-time film; quirks are overplayed while themes remain underdeveloped.

This agreeable, lightweight movie, written and directed by Georgia Lee, turns the malaises of a suburban family into bittersweet farce that teeters between cheeky humor and surface pathos.

A few of the plot threads are woven more neatly than others, but the film makes for a promising debut.

Red Doors is so well-meaning, with such obvious affection for its characters, that it pleases nonetheless.

Despite pic's earnestness and obvious good intentions, narrative elements, carefully set forth though they may be, fall back on overfamiliar, underdeveloped tropes.

Without overdoing the quirk factor or the melodrama, Lee shows a sure feel for family dynamics, and her light touch brings out the best in the ensemble's lovely, understated performances.
