It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong

Guests Expected

Director Emily Ting expected to attend and participate in a special Q&A following the screening.

Description

In this (primarily English-language) sparkling romance, Ruby (Jamie Chung), a Chinese American toy designer from LA, visits Hong Kong for the first time on business. Finding herself stranded, she meets Josh (Bryan Greenberg), an American expat who shows her the city. Meandering through nighttime streets pulsing with energy and possibility, they fall into a winding and carefree conversation, buoyed by an undeniable attraction. Josh shows Ruby the locals' Hong Kong, and disarmingly opens up to Ruby about his goals and dreams. But, as the night moves on, circumstances complicate the veneer of easiness between the two, while also revealing the emotional depth of the quick bond they have developed. As effervescent as a perfect first date, Emily Ting’s charming directorial debut takes full advantage of the chemistry of its leads, the playfulness of their exchanges, and the magical landscape that is Hong Kong at night.
