Part of SFFILM Festival
The challenges facing aging gay men are dramatized with great warmth in Ray Yeung’s Hong Kong-set portrait of a new love affair. Hoi and Pak have both acknowledged their sexuality late in life; Pak is still married when he makes a pass at Hoi, and they’ve both raised children. But together they find a camaraderie and passion that have been missing thus far in their lives. As their relationship touchingly develops, Yeung’s script also advocates movingly for the lives of elderly LGBTQ people.
“[Director] Yeung demonstrates a keen eye for the social dynamics that impact us and how we respond to them, and finds space to bask in the simple pleasures, basic generosity, and the safety net that is family while simultaneously dealing with homophobia, ageism, and faith.” –Elizabeth Kerr, The Hollywood Reporter
