A film that follows the true story of a Chinese American who becomes a world-renowned eye surgeon and sets out to restore the sight of a blind orphan had a successful opening.

Sight, which launched in 2,000 theatres on May 24, achieved an A CinemaScore and an A+ with audiences under 24. The biopic also came out on top, receiving a 100% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

“This is a film that is being embraced by both Chinese and American audiences, as the theme of overcoming our past is universal,” said Brandon Purdie, EVP and Head of Theatrical Distribution at Angel Studios. “We are honoured to bring this film to theatres during Asian American and Pacific Islander Month, and we know that its message will resonate with audiences for years to come.”

Sight stars Greg Kinnear and Terry Chen and follows the true story of Dr. Ming Wang. 

The Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, a non-profit charity founded by Dr. Wang, has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries worldwide, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
