Happy Together

Wong Kar -wai |Hong Kong |1997 |96min
Language: Cantonese with subtitles Rating: PG Cast: Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Leslie Cheung, Chen Chang

Showtimes:

February 1:5:00 pm, 7:00 pm

One of the most searing romances of the 1990s, Wong Kar Wai’s emotionally raw, lushly stylized portrait of a relationship in breakdown casts Hong Kong superstars Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Leslie Cheung Kwok Wing as a couple traveling through Argentina and locked in a turbulent cycle of infatuation and destructive jealousy. Setting out to depict the dynamics of a queer relationship with empathy and complexity on the cusp of the 1997 handover of Hong Kong—when the country’s LGBTQ community suddenly faced an uncertain future—Wong crafts a feverish look at the life cycle of a love affair that is by turns devastating and deliriously romantic.
