Why We Love It

Best known for her title role in the original cast of Miss Saigon, this film marks the first lead movie role for actress Lea Salonga. As an adopted piano prodigy in search of her biological father, the film deals with the theme of finding your true self in all aspects of life, not just nationality. The exceptional performances of John Lithgow and Jeff Daniels add to the star-quality of this film.
