Having attended a few dol parties myself, I was familiar with the intimate cultural milieu of Ahn's film about a Korean-American family celebrating a child's milestone first birthday: the adorable little boy dressed in traditional costume, the dining table laden with Korean dishes, and, after the meal, the mat spread on the floor before the child, strewn with objects representing his future career paths. If he grabs the pen, he's meant to become a scholar; if he goes for the cash, he'll be a business mogul. Ahn's protagonist in Dol , the young uncle of the birthday boy, is gay.

Dol is a heartbreaking study in the tensions of a divided life.
