Spa Night Review - AVClub

AVClub: American independent cinema has long been a viable venue for the children of immigrants to tell their stories, and Andrew Ahn’s first feature, Spa Night, is no exception. A muted melodrama with a keen understanding of subtle social divides, the film follows one young first-generation Korean-American as he takes his first tentative steps outside the confines of his close-knit family, and discovers secrets about his parents and his own community. Though it leaves too many narrative blanks unfilled, Spa Night is a promising debut from a filmmaker with a lot of insight into the different guises that immigrants and their offspring wear as they make their way through the world.

The story is too old to be commented.
