The Roycroft Film Society invites you to a screening of the critically acclaimed and Palme d’Or nominated film, In the Mood for Love. A beautiful, romantic story just in time for the Valentine’s Day season.
The story takes place in 1962, journalist Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and his wife move into a Hong Kong apartment, but Chow’s spouse is often away on business. Before long, the lonely Chow makes the acquaintance of the alluring Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk), whose own significant other also seems preoccupied with work. As the two friends realize their respective partners are cheating on them, they begin to fall for one another; however, neither wants to stoop to the level of the unfaithful spouses.
The film is about love; but also betrayal, loss, missed opportunities, memory, loneliness, and the passage of time. Although it received no Oscar nominations, it received glowing reviews upon its original release, and received major movie awards around the world. It currently holds a 91% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is often considered a major work of Asian cinema and one of the greatest films of the 21st century.
In the Mood for Love will be shown on the third Sunday in February, the 19th at 4:00 pm in the Roycroft Power House, 39 South Grove St., East Aurora. Please join us and stay for the discussion afterwards.
