Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, The Wedding Banquet, Hulk) tells a wonderful story here through his directing. It is a movie about a father's relationship with his 3 daughters. The first daughter is a born-again Christian, who has a tough chance with love. She is expected child to stay behind to take care of her father when the others move out. The second child is the difficult one, who has a mind of her own, and likes to argue with the father, including on the use of the kitchen. The third is still a young adult. I like how the dinner would be interrupted with 'I have an announcement to make...". I am surprised and delighted by the inserted humor in the film and it invites us all to dwell on a simple family, with real-life happenings. I think this is Ang Lee's best.
