This study of An Autumn's Tale argues that Hong Kong films are a window into understanding the shared pasts and ongoing connections between Hong Kong and other globalised cities. With its focus on migration and migrants, An Autumn's Tale especially benefits from the transnational American studies perspective that Dr. Ford brings to her examination. This exciting new field draws from the best of many disciplinary perspectives as well as interdisciplinary perspectives in cultural and postcolonial studies with an eye towards understanding how national identity is both fluid and resilient, even in these global times. The book is readable and teachable for those looking to understand connections between the US and Asia during the closing years of the 20th century during the dynamic 1980s in both Hong Kong and New York.
