This year’s annual Tacoma Sister Cities International Film and Food Festival featured Summer’s Tail, an uplifting Taiwanese movie about four seemingly mismatched high school friends. In addition to the film, attendees were treated to a full evening of Taiwanese culture and food at the Blue Mouse Theatre.
Summer’s Tail is a beautiful, light-hearted movie that does not shy away from life’s darker realties. The main character, Yvette, played by Enno Cheng, a Taiwan-based indie singer-songwriter, is especially captivating. For her portrayal, Cheng was nominated for the award of best new performer at the 2007 Golden Horse Awards, Taiwan’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. Besides acting and singing in the movie, Cheng also wrote the script when she was just 18.
