Travel Romance Star

Romance blossoms between Ruby, a Chinese
 American girl visiting Hong Kong for the first time,
 and Josh, an American expat. However, timing is not
 quite on their side. A year later, their brief encounter
 is about to get a second chance. As effervescent as a
 perfect first date, this charming walk and talk romance
 takes full advantage of the chemistry of its leads,
 the playfulness of their exchanges, and the magical
 landscape that is Hong Kong at night.


 

 

Since it is a walk-and-talk romance about two people
 forming a connection during a chance encounter in
 the bustling city of Hong Kong, It's Already Tomorrow
 in Hong Kong resembles Before Sunrise . This
 romantic comedy that seems quite familiar to us,
 however, transforms into something more interesting
 with the touch of a Chinese-American director Emily
 TING. Ruby, a Chinese-American toy designer, visits
 Hong Kong for the first time on business. Finding
 herself stranded, she meets Josh, an American expat
 fluent in Cantonese who shows her the city. Just as
 things start to look promising romantically for the pair,
 the night is stopped short by a surprising revelation.
 A year later, they run into each other on the ferry to
 Kowloon. The film never shows where their sparkling
 romance is going. It is more interested in showing
 the battle between heart and head, instinct and
 obligation, and dream and reality through their stayor-
 leave relationship. The identity of Hong Kong that
 was a British Colony and reverted back to China
 resembles these imperfect leads who can neither
 stay nor leave as well as the director, an expat herself
 who stayed in Hong Kong for 5 years but never felt
 at home there. Despite a wide range of the issues it
 touches upon such as identity crisis, this film never
 looses its playfulness, not to mention the chemistry
 of its leads and the magical landscape that is Hong
 Kong at night. [CHOI Jinah]
