Critic Reviews for A Picture of You
Nimbly avoiding the excesses of melodrama and the recessiveness of mumblecore, Chan and his likably low-key cast navigate hairpin turns from drama to comedy to outright farce with an impressive sense of proportion.
A curiously likable, entertainingly laid-back Asian-American take on all-too-familiar dysfunctional family tropes, this Kickstarter-enabled effort boldly mines farce along with sentiment.
Sensitive and understated, J.P. Chan's A Picture of You balances humor and sentiment with an instinctive hand, skillfully unearthing honest, unexpected laughs amid intense grief.
The situations of "A Picture of You" feel a bit forced but they're handled in such a likable way that it's forgivable, especially in the superior second half of the film.
Mr. Chan's skill with actors - particularly with Ms. Mei and Mr. Pang's persuasive, easygoing banter - compensates for the story's limitations.
Audience Reviews for A Picture of You
A slight tale that has a lot of good things within but suffers from a couple of poor performances and that the seams are showing.
