This pick is filled with entrancing stories of mothers, daughters and the legacy left to them by their Chinese grandmothers. Told in four parts, you are quickly drawn in and kept entranced. One of the daughters, Jing Mei, is invited to take her mother's place at the weekly Mah Jong game held between her deceased mother's friends. The stories she hears about each grandmother's past are especially captivating, and shine a light on the actions each modern day daughter should take in their lives. If you are short on time over break, the Joy Luck Club is one of the rare cases where the movie is as good as the book.
