    ‘American Girl’ carries high hopes with seven Golden Horse nominations (2021/11/24)

    The Golden Horse film awards take the stage this Saturday. Among the movies up for top honors is family drama "American Girl." Both newcomer Caitlin Fang and Taiwanese-Canadian movie royalty Karena Lam are up for Best Actress. They play a mother and daughter pair in the coming-of-age drama. The film is being hailed as an honest and insightful take on the Taiwanese-American experience.

    A teenage girl moves back from the U.S. to Taiwan with her cancer-stricken mother. Her Chinese is wobbly, and she can't adapt to Taiwanese school. Mother and daughter are constantly fighting. Caitlin Fang stars in "American Girl," her breakout role. She's garnered a nomination for best newcomer at the Golden Horse awards, while both Fang and her onscreen mother, Karena Lam, are nominated for Best Actress.

    I was so nervous! Because I had a crying scene on the third day, and then I had to cut my hair for real. I remember how happy I was when I heard I was nominated. The director called me and we screamed together.

    She really cut her hair short. Actually she did such a great job. It was the third day, so the whole crew suddenly gave her massive respect. All the women in the room were crying watching it.

    "American Girl" is the coming-of-age of a young woman searching for her identity and caught by the demands of her family. The story is based on director Roan Feng-i's own life. It's also a striking glance back at the year 2000. All the props, from Roan's dad's old suit to the decor in the family home, create an uncanny blast from the past.

    My dad was still angry, because I hadn't told him we were doing that. He came home and said, "We've been burgled, haven't we?" We'd moved all the stuff out of the rooms. I hadn't planned to take that much, but the art director said it's really difficult to find things from that decade.

    This is Roan's first feature film, but with seven Golden Horse nominations, it's fair to say it's no flop. Since the Golden Horse premiere, it's been hailed by critics and won the audience choice vote, demonstrating the power of a heartfelt family drama.
