Writer Amy Tan’s hit debut novel, The Joy Luck Club, catapulted her to commercial and critical success. With the 1993 blockbuster film adaption that followed, as well as other bestsellers like The Kitchen God’s Wife and The Hundred Secret Senses, Tan firmly established herself as one of the most prominent and respected literary voices working today— and a global icon for Asian Americans. In this intimate, newly-released portrait tracing her life and career, Tan opens up with remarkable frankness about her painful past, and how writing has helped her heal. Featuring interviews with fellow writers Kevin Kwan, Isabel Allende and Dave Barry, the film offers an inside look at a brave artist whose humanity infuses all of her work.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. For additional assistance, visit our FAQ page or email us at
