Movie Info

"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. Two of the Soong sisters married important figures in 20th-century Chinese history. Soong Ching-ling married Sun Yat-sen, the founder of the Chinese Republic while her sister May-ling married Sun's successor, the famed Chian Kai-shek. 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

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!
