Beauty Remains 2007
description written by member Zara:
Set in 1948 in Qingdao, China against a backdrop of the rise of Communism, "The Beauty Remainstells the story of two sisters-Fei (Zhou Xun) and Ying (Vivian Wu)-separated by the dictates of custom, bound together by the will of their recently deceased father, Master Li, a legendary entrepreneur and a man who has "made generations of women suffer." The illegitimate daughter of Master Li and the maid of the household, Fei has grown up in disgrace while her half-sister, Ying, has lived a life of opulent leisure. When Master Li dies, the sisters learn that the continuation of Fei's academic scholarship and the liquidation of the family's estate are contingent upon the return of Fei to the Li household. Forced to invite her half-sister back into the family fold, Ying is enraged. Ying assumes, however, that this proud young woman will be no threat to her eventual claim to the family fortune. But there is one complication Ying didn't count on.
