CHILDREN OF HUANG SHI, THE (2008) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Radha Mitchell, Chow Yun Fat, Michelle Yeoh, Guang Li, Ji Lin, Matthew Walker
Directed By:  Roger Spottiswoode
Composed By:  David Hirschfelder

“A little-known true story is sensitively brought to the screen…it radiates intelligence. Of how many historical epics can that be said these days?”
– Peter Rainer, The Christian Science Monitor

“Roger Spottiswoode directs with old-fashioned style, avoiding the saccharine…The terrific cinematographer Zhao Xiaoding photographs dust devils and bullets as carefully as the luminous face of Michelle Yeoh.”
– Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

The beautifully engaged director Roger Spottiswoode (Under Fire, also from Twilight Time) brings us The Children of Huang Shi (2008), a wrenching historical drama starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as George Hogg, a British journalist caught up in the brutal Japanese invasion of China in 1938. Via encounters with a Chinese resistance fighter (the marvelous Chow Yun-fat), an American nurse (Radha Mitchell), and an aristocratic lady (Michelle Yeoh), Hogg becomes a better man – and eventually helps to lead a group of Chinese orphans on a terrifying trek in search of a safe haven. Shot by superb cinematographer Zhao Xiaoding (House of Flying Daggers) and featuring a score from David Hirschfelder (Shine).
