Movie Info

For ten years, Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) dreams of meeting her Australian sponsor - Dean Randall (Guy Pearce) - and his 'perfect family'. 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. (c) Gravitas

  • Great Aussie crime thriller droops at the end but pulls through thanks to Guy Pearce.

    May 27, 2013 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • The "oh-so-innocent waif and big old baddie" odd-couple formula dates back to D.W. Griffith, but this muddled effort does nothing to merit its questionable revival.

  • Innocence meets experience, unconvincingly, in the strained redemption drama "33 Postcards."

    May 17, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Were it not for the staccato bursts of violence, this Chinese-Australian co-production about how an adorable orphan brings love into the life of a hardened convict would feel like a film from Hayley Mills' heyday.

    May 17, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The film has a few good story turns up its sleeve, but prepare yourself for heavy melodrama in the third act.

    May 16, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Sweet to the point of getting a sugar rush. Underwritten and under-directed in style and realization, it has all the substance of a confection.
