In this film, Mr. Shi (Henry O) comes to the United States to see his divorced daughter, Yilan (Faye Yu).

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] gentle, pleasantly unrushed piece of moviemaking....A THOUSAND YEARS studies the subtle day-to-day tensions between Mr. Shi and Yilan before building, in its circumspect way, to a big emotional resolution."
    New York Times

    "[Q]uiet, understated....Rich in revealing detail and apt in its use of everyday Spokane settings, A THOUSAND YEARS OF GOOD PRAYERS shows that Wang remains a master explorer of the landscape of the human heart."
    Los Angeles Times

    "PRAYERS is a spare, controlled study in communication gaps and a piercing sketch of suburban American loneliness." -- Grade: B+
