Mindy Ho, an eccentric, strong-minded 12-year-old, stages Taoist magical experiments to save her harried single mother from financial and romantic ruin. Her misdirected charms appear to cause an aging security guard to lose his job and a local butcher to win the lottery, ultimately forcing each man to face his worst fears. Whether it's through Mindy's spells, her monumental sense of purpose--or it's that life's mysterious logic is at work--her mother's drab existence is enlivened.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"With the sure hand of a skilled miniaturist, Mina Shum has crafted a nearly flawless film."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"The cold and dreary weather is a perfect metaphor for the movie itself, which contains few laughs and not much drama."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"An awkwardly contrived exercise in magic realism."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The story is smart and entirely charming in intent and execution."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"Long Life, Happiness & Prosperity is more often forced than affecting."
‑ Shlomo Schwartzberg, Boxoffice Magazine
"The problematic characters and overly convenient plot twists foul up Shum's good intentions."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
