{The Motel}


The Motel is a new comedy from the makers of Chuck & Buck and Me You & Everyone We Know. The film has picked up lots of awards at recent film festivals and has now began playing in select theaters nationwide. The Motel is based on the novel Waylaid by Ed Lin.

Thirteen-year-old Ernest Chin lives and works at a sleazy hourly-rate motel on a strip of desolate suburban bi-way. Misunderstood by his family and blindly careening into puberty, Ernest befriends Sam Kim, a self-destructive yet charismatic Korean American man who has checked in. Sam teaches the fatherless boy all the rites of manhood.
