Chinatown movies?


c green

Anyone know of a good PG-rated movie about Chinese life on the West Coast in the 1800s? We're about to read a love story set in San Francisco's Chinese community during the Gold Rush, and I'd love to show a film to go with it.

Thousand Pieces of Gold is PG-13. Eat a Bowl of Tea, which is set a hundred years later, is also PG-13. Joy Luck Club is set a gazillion years later, and is R-rated.

How is it possible that there's no kids movie about Chinese settlers? Ideas for what they could see?
