Sticky situation.

Immigration tales couldn't be any more timely, so it is with good reason Ann Marie Fleming dusted off an old story to unfurl it in glorious animated color.

A west coast Canadian of Chinese and Iranian heritage, Rosie Ming is a young poet enamored with Paris. It's a bit of a cultural mess really. And when she receives an invite to a festival (her first), it opens a hallway of doors, and possible answers to many burning questions.

Raised by her Chinese grandparents, the thrilling mystery of Rosie's missing parents is soon revealed, as is her place in the world. The Western - Eastern - Muslim triangle is handled impeccably through Rosie's adventure, some well placed history lessons, and bouncy animation.

Yes it's a heart-tugging, feel good flick, but when told this well, goes over ever so swell, and it looks great on the big screen.
