Movie Screening Summary
High-school student Alfred Chin (Taylor Takahashi, making his feature-film debut) — Boogie, to his friends — dreams of making it big in basketball. Determined to score a coveted spot in the NBA, a rarity for an Asian-American, Boogie pursues the college scholarship track while his overbearing mother (Pamelyn Chee) plots another path for him with the help of a Chinese recruiter. Honing his skills on the cutthroat basketball courts of Lower Manhattan while navigating high-school commitments, a burgeoning romance with his classmate Eleanor (Taylour Paige) and parental strife at home, Boogie finds himself in a relentless battle for his future — culminating in a New York City street ball showdown with the number-one ranked Monk, played by the late Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke, making his acting debut.
Written and directed by — and co-starring — Eddie Huang, whose best-selling memoir on Asian-American family life, Fresh Off the Boat, became a hit ABC sitcom, and whose Manhattan restaurant Baohaus and Vice show Huang’s World placed him in the food and travel zeitgeist, Boogie marks the filmmaking debut of a singular, frenetic and global talent.
