MY PRINCE EDWARD

Friday, Sep 4 (All day) to Thursday, Sep 24 (All day)

QUARANTINE CINEMA OFFERING

AVAILABLE STARTING SEPTEMBER 4

 

 

Serving countless newlyweds in Hong Kong’s go-to one-stop-shop of cheap wedding supplies doesn’t exempt Fong from social pressure to marry. Since nodding to Edward’s proposal, she has been pushed beyond limits by unaffordable housing, archaic customs, and intrusive in-laws. What befuddles her further is the reappearance of Shuwei, a mainlander she’s supposed to be divorced from out of a sham marriage that solved her coming-of-age hardship. Zeroing in on nuts and bolts of modern marriage, My Prince Edward pokes around fixated correlations of freedom with relationship status and geographic residence. Like a breath of fresh air out of the breathless space it navigates, the delightful gem contributes a rare humane take on the worldly metropolis's divisions with humor and wisdom. As Fong redefines her best life and writer-director Norris Wong reclaims her home city's narrative from outsiders, the profound thrills sparked by their courage will make you wholeheartedly cheer for a woman’s independence and Hong Kong cinema’s rejuvenation

Director: Wong, Yee-Lam (Norris)

Starring: Stephy Tang, Pak Hon Chu, Hee Ching Paw

“A tender and realistic local story in a delicate narrative humorously questions marriage’s essence, conveying the gentlest interpretation of Hong Kong-mainland dynamic seen in recent Hong Kong cinema…The filmmaker ponders “freedom” beyond eloquent dialogues and examines its correlation with “marriage” and “residency”. Opting for a balanced and mellow expression rather than bitter harshness, the critiques are delivered with power full-on.” - Jasmine Jia, The Initium
