Actress Bai Ling shows Mr. Media how to put the “beautiful” in A Beautiful Life!

Based on the award-winning play, Jersey City, by Wendy Hammond, A Beautiful Life was directed by Alejandro Chomski, who made his Cannes debut in 2003 with his Argentine film, Hoy Y Mañana. The screenplay was co-written by Hammond and Deborah Calla, who also produced the film.

A Beautiful Life stars Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, Days of Wrath), Angela Sarafyan (The Informers, Kabluey), Bai Ling (Love Ranch, The Crow), Dana Delany (“Desperate Housewives,” Multiple Sarcasms) and Debi Mazar (“Entourage,” The Women).

Filmed entirely in downtown Los Angeles by cinematographer Nancy Schreiber (Best Cinematography Award, Sundance 2004) and produced by Deborah Calla, A Beautiful Life tells a story of survival.

Bai Ling is one of China’s most prestigious exports. Since Red Corner, her co-starring break-out role with Richard Gere, Bai Ling hasn’t stopped working. Her other films include Man About Town opposite Ben Affleck, Lords of Dogtown with Heath Ledger, Southland Tales with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law just to name a few.

She’ll soon be seen in Love Ranch directed by Taylor Hackford (Ray). It also stars Helen Mirren.

Bai Ling was named one of People’s "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" in 1998.
