Serving countless newlyweds in Hong Kong’s one-stop-shop of cheap wedding supplies doesn’t exempt Fong (Stephy Tang) from social pressure to marry. Since accepting her partner’s proposal, she has been under siege by unaffordable housing, archaic customs, intrusive in-laws — and a past that she hasn’t revealed to anyone. Director Norris Wong creates a empathetic, often funny, and perceptive portrait of love under duress. Starring the inimitable Stephy Tang, My Prince Edward is one of our favorite films of the year.

“A mosaic of small, telling moments…builds an intricate world of lost dreams and disappointments…Wong’s humor and sympathy for her characters make them people to care about.” — Daniel Eagan, The Film Stage
“A must see! What Hong Kong blockbusters today dare not touch is on full display here.” — Wen Tien-Hsiang, Mirror Media
