An outrageous comedy that brings New York’s ChineseAmerican underworld to the (virtual) big screen. The eponymous Grandma (played by veteran actressTsai Chin) tries her hand at blackjack and runs afoul of Chinatown gangs. Part buddy comedy, part heist film, Lucky Grandma is anchored by Chin’s excellent performance, which the New York Times calls
“effortlessly funny.”
