American Studies Film Series

The Wedding Banquet

Date: 2 Nov 2011
Time: 7 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Venue: Room CYCP1, Chong Yuet Ming Building (Chemistry/Physics)

Film: The Wedding Banquet (1993 / 106 min)
Director: Ang Lee

This 1993 international hit by Ang Lee is a funny and poignant story of a gay, Taiwanese-American man who goes to some lengths to fool his visiting family that he's actually straight. The results are far more complicated and entertaining than anyone could have guessed. The film seems all the more rich now since Lee has become a major Hollywood director: that same sensitivity and mild bemusement he brought to such stories of manners as Sense and Sensibility and The Ice Storm in recent years are in full bloom in this earlier work. --Tom Keogh
