‘Go Back to China’ Review: Emily Ting’s Winning Fish-Out-of-Water Coming-of-Age Comedy

‘Go Back to China’ Review: Emily Ting’s Winning Fish-Out-of-Water Coming-of-Age Comedy
In a mainstream entertainment landscape that’s still sorely lacking on-screen Asian representation, Emily Ting’s winning “Go Back to China” will inevitably draw comparisons to other films like “Crazy Rich Asians” and “The Farewell.” And while each feature focuses on Americanized young people returning to their ancestral roots and finding surprises both good and bad, each film offers its own distinct charms and viewpoints. Why, it’s almost as if there’s more than one story to tell about people who make up literally more than half of the world’s population! Such sardonic observations would not be out of place in Ting’s sophomore film (the writer and director made her debut in 2015 with the amiable romance “Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong”), which takes a spit-out slur and turns it into the start of an unexpectedly sweet coming-of-age comedy.

Review: It May Be Called ‘How He Fell in Love,’ But Its Female Star Is The Reason To See It

Review: It May Be Called ‘How He Fell in Love,’ But Its Female Star Is The Reason To See It
The title of writer/director Marc Meyers’ third feature film is a curious thing. Rather than fixate on one half of a relationship, “How He Fell in Love” instead becomes a much fuller look at how a relationship travels from casual acquaintances into unanticipated territory. With a sharp focus on an evolving relationship between Travis (Matt McGorry), an ambling part-time musician and Ellen, a married yoga studio instructor, Meyers foregoes easy judgment or condemnation to give a full view of a love with consequences.

Skillfully tracking the emotional parabola of their affair, “How He Fell in Love” gives breathing room to each stage of their interactions, beginning with their chance meeting at a wedding. As the two spend time together, casually flirting inside the yoga studio and beyond, their coded parsing of clues and discussions with friends afterwards help widen the scope of their potential romantic involvement. Early on in their friendship,

New to Streaming: ‘Knight of Cups,’ ‘Mountains May Depart,’ ’45 Years,’ ‘Eye in the Sky,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary.

Does Captain Marvel Have A Star And Director Lined Up?

With the release of Captain America: Civil War less than two weeks off, Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to shift into overdrive. It may be a long time before Captain Marvel sees action in 2019, but is it possible that Marvel’s already got the perfect lead actress and director in mind?

During this week’s episode of Meet The Movie Press, The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider had some interesting insight into the forthcoming Captain Marvel flick. Although cryptic, Sneider did offer up a curious possibility.

“There was a rumour about an actress being up for it; an already existing rumour, that’s not new. I’ve definitely heard there’s some truth to that rumour, and that there’s a director with the same first name who has also been eyed. I don’t think that [an announcement] is too far off. If they can make it to Comic Con,

It's no lie that Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg make one adorable couple, but now they are taking their romance to the big screen.

Popsugar: In the movie, Josh talks about how "it's already tomorrow in Hong Kong" referring to the fast-paced lifestyle of the city. I feel like the phrase also symbolizes Ruby and Josh's fast-paced romance in the movie. Was it like that with the two of you? Bryan Greenberg: It's a very fast-paced city.

Review: In Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong, The Fundamental Things Apply

Here's the basic plotline of producer and now first-time writer-director Emily Ting's immensely charming romance Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong, boiled down to its basic essence. A man and a woman meet, and -- spoiler alert -- fall in love over the course of two separate nights in an alluring, non-us city, in this case, as you probably gathered from the title, Hong Kong. Ok, so let's address the cinematic elephant in the room right off the bat. Yes, of course Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise and its two sequels are unavoidable talking points with respect to Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong. And to her credit, Ting doesn't try to deny or walk away from these obvious antecedents. But continually harping on this anxiety-of-influence angle, as too many commentators on...
