Free premiere screening and reception!
Giant Robot is pleased to offer tickets to the U.S. premiere of The Children of Huang Shi. This is how the press kit describes the plot: "Based on real events, The Children of Huang Shi is a sweeping but intimate story set against war-torn China in the 1930’s. The film centers on a young English journalist (Jonathan Rhys Myers), an American nurse (Radha Mitchell) and the leader of a Chinese partisan group (Chow Yun-Fat) who meet in desperate and unexpected circumstances. Together they rescue 60-orphaned, children leading them on an extraordinary journey, across hundreds of miles of treacherous terrain, through snow-covered mountains and an unforgiving desert. Along the way they discover the true meaning of love, responsibility, and courage."
Hm. Sounds kind of like Hard Boiled to me! The special screening of this historical epic--which features not only Chow Yun-Fat but also Michelle Yeoh--takes place on Thursday, May 15 at 7:30 at the Landmark Theatres at the Westside Pavilion in West L.A. and will be followed by a post-screening reception. Talk about a cool, cheap date!
