Last night I watched a movie called Come See the Paradise. It is a love story between a Irish-American man and a Japanese-American woman which takes place in California before and during WWII. It also depicts the difficulties that many Japanese-Americans had to go through, like being labeled the enemy and being put in internment camps. More than 120,000 Japanese people were forced to abandon their homes and belongings and go live in internment camps (outdoor prisons) in the countyside. Has anyone seen this movie? What do you think of the way Japanese people are depicted?
