The Wedding Banquet

As a reviewer put it - this is one of the best cross-cultural, generational, and timeless stories of all time.   Several angles to the story - acceptance of a gay relationship, generational differences, Asian culture and upholding traditions, friendships ....Ang Lee brings a lot of sensitivity to film.  It is interesting how the characters are real and respected for their respective beliefs.  Key is to not get judgemental - recognize and accept each character's compulsion to behave the way they do. 

Definitely put it on your list.
