Falling for Grace
Fay Ann Lee's modern spin on the story of Cinderella, Falling For Grace, stars Fay Ann Lee as a Chinese-American who dreams of living among the social elites in New York City. One day she is mistaken for an heiress and is invited to a posh party where she falls in love with a lawyer. She hides her true identity from him, and he himself has a few secrets he keeps from the woman. Falling For Grace had its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival (where it screened under the title East Broadway). ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie practically serves as a cautionary primer of romantic clichés, including a hackneyed storyline, an overly syrupy score, clumsily staged scenes, ridiculous coincidences and dull performances."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Wonderfully anchored by symbolic socioeconomic elements borrowed from Cinderella and its Chinese folkloric version, along with sassy comic relief courtesy of Margaret Cho as a take no prisoners colleague with strong opinions."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"A mess with moments of transcendence, suggesting that [director] Lee has talent. But she needs to learn how to get out of her own way."
‑ Pam Grady, San Francisco Chronicle
"Romantic comedy of a first-generation Chinese woman, played by the writer-director, and her old-money WASP beau is no My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
