Wil power: Michelle Krusiec shines in Saving Face as Wil Pang, a dutiful daughter who's also gay.
Saving Face is the first American film to feature a love story between two Chinese women. Krusiec acknowledges that many Chinese people tend to perceive homosexuals "as the worst thing you can be." But the actress, who has been exclusively in heterosexual relationships, doesn't share that perception. Working on the film, she says, "made falling in love with a woman seem conceivable to me."
