20th Century Fox have announced the UK DVD release of 'Snow Flower And The Secret Fan' for the 14th May, 2012. Set in 19th Century China, the film centres on the lifelong friendship between two girls who develop their own secret code as a way to contend with the rigid cultural norms imposed on women.
Centuries ago, two “sworn sisters” are isolated by their families, but stay connected through a secret language written in the folds of a white silk fan. Now in modern-day Shanghai, their descendents must draw inspiration from the past as they struggle to maintain their own eternal bond in the face of life’s complications. What unfolds are two stories, generations apart, but everlasting in their universal notion of love, hope and friendship.
Artwork and trailer are below, and you can preorder the DVD now from Amazon.co.uk.
