In Cinemas Now

Suzhou River's Xun Zhou stars in this Chinese romantic drama from Sundance Grand Jury Prize-nominated Japanese director Shunji Iwai (Vampire).

"All Yuan Zhinan has left behind when she passed away is a letter and an invitation to a school reunion. Attending the reunion in lieu of her late elder sister, Zhihua accidentally runs into Yin Chuan, on whom she had a crush in her youth. As old memories are evoked, and correspondences travel through different contexts and times, Zhihua slowly uncovers the intricate story of the trio." (Golden Horse Film Festival)

Playing a character who can't quite let go of past romantic disappointment despite her apparent present day happiness, Zhou credibly grounds a scenario so lightweight that it often seems about to float away.
