Queerly Beloved: The Wedding Banquet
Filmmaker Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) brings depth and humour to this New York-set comedy of manners. Wai-Tung (Winston Chon) and his boyfriend (Mitchell Lichtenstein) live without a care in the world. Except one small thing: Wai-Tung hasn’t told his Taiwanese parents that he has a boyfriend, or even that he is gay. He agrees to marry struggling artist, Wei-Wei (May Chin), both to grant her a green card and appease his parents. All is grand until his parents announce a trip to America—and their plans to throw an extravagant wedding banquet.
Queerly Beloved is presented in partnership with Paradise.
