Amy Tan is a name familiar amongst readers both in the Asian American community and beyond. Beginning with her renowned debut novel, The Joy Luck Club, she has since risen to become the go-to author when it comes to Asian American literature.
But it hasn’t just been a life of endless happiness and success for the generally private author. In James Redford’s final film, AMY TAN: UNINTENDED MEMOIR provides a deep glimpse into Tan’s life and work; from the traumas of her past, to the solace she found in her writing, the pressure that came with her success, and how she has pursued other artistic forms for the sake of appeasing no one else but herself.
