Fortune Cookies is a quirky British comedy centred around the heart of a Chinese family, where tradition and modernity clash. While the eccentric family may not always see eye to eye, they know they will always have each other. (Probably because no-one else would put up with them.)
Susan Lee is troubled. She dreams of being an actress, while her family dream of appearing on their favourite gameshow Les Dennis’Fame to Fortune. So what should Susan do when the Lees win an opportunity to appear on the show – their only chance to save their takeaway from loansharks – on the same night as her stage debut?
This film is about family, love and the important choices we make. Throw in fried rice, fish and chips, and a TV gameshow and you have the perfect ingredients for a night at the cinema.
