Thousand Pieces of Gold

Starring Rosalind Chao and Chris Cooper. A real-life story of a young Chinese woman brought to America as a slave during the late Gold Rush. Based on the biographical novel of the same name by Ruthanne Lum McCunn.

Kelly directs all her actors with care and sensitivity…It’s a film with real feeling, a warmth surging up naturally from the performances.
