Snow Flower and the Secret Fan (2011)



There will be a film adaptation of Lisa See's novel 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan'. The story, a rather tragic one, is set the Chinese 19th century where women are kept secluded and never intermengle with the men. Lily is paired with a "laotong" a kind of emotional match that will last for a lifetime. Her laotong is Snow Flower, and they keep in touch by sending eachother silk fans on which they write or paint their stories in nushu (secret language that only women could read). This way they are able to share there problems they face in life.

Ziyi Zhang and Jeon Ji-hyun (Gianna Jun) will star in this film, we just have two wait for another year....
