Documentary portrait of the winter 2013/14 Ukrainian demonstrations in Kiev against the pro-Moscow presidency of Viktor Yanukovych and for a greater integration with Europe.
Wei-Tung (Chao) and Simon (Lichtenstein) are a gay couple living in Manhattan - but Wei-Tung's parents are very keen for him to settle down with a nice Chinese girl and produce oodles of grandchildren. So, using a green card as a carrot, they enlist Wei-Wei (Chin), a nice Chinese girl - to help them out (on the first point, at least) and start making preparations for the traditional Chinese wedding banquet. Which, of course, is where it all starts to go wrong. Lee's sweetly balanced farce explores the deceptions that exist in the relationships between parents and children, and never becomes implausible - even in a scene in which Wei-Tung's parents offer to put his name down for a matchmaking agency, and he, thinking that it'll be beyond the bounds of possibility, requests a very tall opera singer. (No problem, he discovers.
) Lee's control of his characters is already pretty masterful: this is a smart, funny and moving work.
