Over the past few years there have been a number of films shot in Spokane. Who can forget Cuba Gooding Jr. in Endgame, or even Chuck Norris' The Cutter? Classics. OK not really, but a new film may just reverse this sorry track record.
The Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) drama A Thousand Years of Good Prayers is set to be released on September 19th and it's already garnered an award or two at the San Sebastian film festival. The bonus: From the footage in the preview below there are some fantastic scenes of Spokane. The movie will hit our must see list if for no other reason than to see Spokane through this director's lens. The downside: It's not listed as playing in Spokane as of yet.
