Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong (2015)

Country: USA, Hong Kong

Genres: Comedy, Romance

Director: Emily Ting

Writers: Emily Ting

Stars: Jamie Chung, Bryan Greenberg, Sarah Lian, Richard Ng, ...

An attraction forms when a Chinese American girl visiting Hong Kong for the first time meets an American expat who shows her the way, but timing may not quite be on their side. A walk and talk romance set in the beautiful city of Hong Kong, the film asks the question - what happens when you meet the right person at the wrong time?

The immensely likable Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is a freshly contemporary change-up on the traditional cross-cultural romantic-comedy.

Ting, to her credit, is more interested in the battle between heart and head, instinct and obligation, than in what follows. “Already Tomorrow” is about ambivalence, not gratification, and is more interesting for it.

It’s always entertaining to tag along with these attractive actors on their photogenic journey.

This earnest, slight romance doesn’t generate enough sparks to overcome the anxiety of its obvious influence. But as a simple valentine to Hong Kong’s expat nightlife, the film makes for charming, breezy viewing, and the director shows promise going forward.

The two stars are attractive, and Emily Ting, who wrote and directed, makes the city look great, but during their endless strolling Ruby and Josh never get much beyond shallow banter.

The film lacks the underlying subtext that grounded similar hopeful-yet-doomed-romance stories in the past.

The script labors to give the film a strong sense of place, but strange lapses confirm a sense that the city isn't a character here.
