Chuti Tiu’s “Pretty Rosebud” Ignites Human Vulnerability When Battling Cultural Traditions
Oscar Torre: Directorial Debut Unlocks Deep Emotions in “Pretty Rosebud”
Everyone thinks Cissy (Chuti Tiu) has the perfect life – except Cissy. Striving to be the “good girl,” at home and at work, has left her on the verge of a breakdown. A childless marriage to a handsome architect (Kipp Shiotani) has gone stale, while questions about babies pepper every well-meaning conversation with family and friends. The cultural abyss dividing Cissy and her traditional Asian parents drives her to a desperate act of survival, defying societal taboos… awakening something so primal it is both shocking and revelatory.
Oscar Torre (The Hangover 3, Counterpunch) makes his directorial debut with Pretty Rosebud. Written by Tiu (The Internship, Rampart) and produced by Rebecca Hu (40 is the New Dead). Starring: Chuti Tiu, Kipp Shiotani, and Dana Lee.
It’s a great film about real life most of us can relate to. A very interesting perspective!
