Netflix has nabbed the rights to stream Little Big Women, Taiwan’s highest-grossing box office film of 2020. The movie, which stars Golden Horse Awards winner Chen Shu-fang, Hsieh Ying-xuan (Dear Ex), Vivian Hsu and Sun Ke-fang, is based on director Joseph Chen-chieh Hsu’s personal experience.

It tells the story of how a family grapples with and eventually accepts the fact that their recently deceased grandfather was having an affair, exploring how the grandmother overcomes this grudge and learns to accept the other woman. Diving into how a generation of women free themselves from the confines of traditional family values, the film shines a light on how people experience betrayal and pain and ultimately find reconciliation.

Joseph Chen-chieh Hsu explained: “The overarching theme of Little Big Women is the process of gradually putting things to rest; I am confident that people from all corners of the world can empathize with issues involving life and death and the resentment and grudges that we experience.”

Chen Shu-fang, who was named Best Leading Actress at the 57th Golden Horse Awards – making her the most senior actress to have won this award in Taiwan’s film history – added: “Taiwanese women are best described as persevering and responsible. I am delighted for the world to watch Little Big Women and to show everyone how the Taiwanese woman holds a family together.”    [FULL STORY]
