Goes beyond the obvious into something a lot more current and meaningful: the need to make your own love, even if society looks askance.Orlando SentinelJuly 01, 2005
Saves face with terrific performances.Globe and MailJuly 01, 2005

If that sounds supremely sitcomy, well, it is. But Wu and her cast elevate the proceedings.Urban CinefileAugust 30, 2005
There's a wedding, a death and two love affairs in Saving Face, and they all come as a surpriseAdvocate (Baton Rouge, LA)August 12, 2005
