YES, WE’RE OPEN
Directed by Richard Wong
Best Screenplay, 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival
Somewhere between the sheets is happiness in this sharp contemporary comedy from the writer-director team of Colma: The Musical(SDAFF ‘06).
Sylvia (Lynn Chen) and Luke (Parry Shen) are a typical young couple in the Bay, neurotically poring over the details of relationships in a modern age. Enter Elena (Sheetal Sheth) and Ronald (Kerry McCrohan), a couple with a “flexible” approach to monogamy. Against the backdrop of a progressive city and its progressive lovers, Sylvia and Luke test their modern-day values against their carnal pleasures and the identities they thought they’d already figured out. This is a sex-romp with heart, intelligence, and bite for Bay Area living.
An all-star cast joins the dynamic duo of writer-composer H.P. Mendoza (Fruit Fly, SDAFF ’09; I Am a Ghost) and director Richard Wong, who once again enliven beautiful San Francisco with wit, humor, and self-reflexive playfulness. –Phillip Lorenzo
