First screened in September 2014
Director: Hong Khaou. Cast: Ben Whishaw, Cheng Pei-Pei, Andrew Leung, Naomi Christie, Peter Bowles, Morven Christie. Screenplay: Hong Khaou.

Twitter Capsule: Cheng and Whishaw furnish emotional authenticity to moving, cross-generational, transcultural tale that remains a bit stilted.

VOR:   Cross-generational, cross-cultural, multi-linguistic purviews are rare and welcome in any genre, to include LGBT cinema, even if in other respects this is fairly familiar.
