reviews

 

"Real-life couple add sparks to a perceptive look at courtship that pokes innocuous fun at expat stereotypes and enchants with its display of Hong Kong's captivating night lights"

    - Edmund Lee, South China Morning Post

 

"While the seeds of romance linger in the foreground of Emily Ting's first turn as writer-director, Already Tomorrow is just as much about our two leads as it is an ode to the city that we call home."

    - Time Out Hong Kong

 

"Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong channels Before Sunrise in a very good way."

    - Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times

 

"A will-they-or-won't-they romance that invests a lot in the attractiveness of that city."

    - Neil Genzlinger, New York Times

 

"Ting, to her credit, is more interested in the battle between heart and head, instinct and obligation, than in what follows. [The film] is about ambivalence, not gratification, and is more interesting for it." 

   - Tom Keogh, Seattle Times

 

"Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is welcome proof that they can still make romantic comedies."

     - Sherilyn Connelly, Village Voice

 

"Ting and cinematographer Josh Silfen treat their location as a charming, sparkly bubble bustling with romantic potential."

     - Norman Wilner, Now Toronto

 

"As both a valentine to a new love and Hong Kong's Cantonese cosmopolitanism, it's a breezily, enjoyable and heartfelt travelogue." 

     - Cary Darling, Fort-Worth Star Telegram

 

"Ting has put together a refreshing exploration of love and unknown places in the human heart, inviting the lively Hong Kong as a not-so-silent supporting character."

    - Henrick Vartanian, Brave New Hollywood

 

"If a romantic comedy took place inside a guidebook, it might look a lot like Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong." 

     - Stephanie Liebold, Travelcraft Journal

 

"It's a beguiling first-date movie that actually might work well for anyone on a first date - and any couple long past first dates. Valentine's Day anyone?"

     - Kirk Honeycutt, Honeycutt's Hollywood

 

"This film is a true delight for those who fall in love cerebrally and are firm believers that serendipity is the key to life." 

     - Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi, Shockya

 

"[The film] tells a universal tale of characters struggling with professional and personal desires, romantic or otherwise"

     - Kenji Fujishima, Paste Magazine

 

"A charming and simple film about two potential lovers walking and talking the night away in Hong Kong"

      - Steve Mesa, Examiner.com

 

"[It's] a cute romantic comedy that clocks in at a lean 80 minutes and will more than likely leave viewers wanting more, in the best way possible. I highly recommend it."

       - Max Havey, Vox Magazine

 

"This funny, witty, and fast pace dialogue film...is a must see for those craving a reminder of times when we decide the important things in our lives" 

       - Jenny Duan, The Ubyssey

 

"Emily Ting's film, notwithstanding its modern-day devices, beautifully reminds us that despite our technological hyper-connectedness, the fundamental things apply...we still need, and constantly seek, basic human connection."

– Christopher Bourne, TwitchFilm

 

“A delightful, honest look at personal connections and the trouble with timing.” 

- Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects

 

“Hong Kong emerges as a stunning backdrop…It’s always entertaining to tag along with these attractive actors on their photogenic journey”

– Stephen Farber, The Hollywood Reporter

 

“The film is beautifully executed, with gorgeous cinematography and a lovely sense of rhythm, long walking and talking steadicam shots juxtaposed with environment-establishing shots of the nighttime city. The editing, sound design, and music, both diegetic and non, weave together a sensory tapestry of sound and light.”

– Katie Walsh, Indiewire

 

“As a simple valentine to Hong Kong’s expat nightlife, the film makes for charming, breezy viewing, and the director shows promise going forward.”

– Andrew Barker, Variety 

 

“An engaging and relatable romantic drama that poses some interesting, awkward, and heartfelt questions about life, love and the pursuit of talking plush toys.”

– Ernie Trinidad, Film Pulse

 

“Timing is the central force in the film… Despite the fact that the movie only follows the couple through two nights of chance meetings, spaced one year apart, the hours they do spend together seem to accomplish more than the years they’ve spent dating other people have. The title plays on this feeling, suggesting that they’re moving faster because they’re on Hong Kong time, but the film itself gives the impression that the nights they spend together exist outside of time altogether.”

– Vanessa Soto, Hollywood Times Square

 

“…the dialogue of the film which seemed to me the most realistic and genuine scripting I have seen in a romance film in a long time”

– Richard Cardenas, Popcults

 

“Beyond just a captivating romance, [the film] doubles as a postcard of Hong Kong, to the point where the city’s tourism department should give Ting a stipend.”

– Andy Greene, Pop Insomniac

 

“Genuinely romantic and consistently entertaining…the chemistry between the leads is tangible and easy to invest in thanks to a sharp script from Emily Ting and the skilled Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung delivering it with plentiful chemistry and soul.”

– Alex Williams, Cinapse

 

“Ting has a talent for natural dialogue and relatable situations and with a crisp 80 minute runtime, a nice pace as well… a highly enjoyable and impressively put together film.”

– CJ Perry, Film Slate

 

“Sharp, witty, and simply irresistible…the chemistry between Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg is so perfect, it could light up a small district in Hong Kong.”

Rama’s Screen

 

“There’s something magical about watching two souls connect and Emily Ting manages to mine the script for what it’s worth.”

– Terence Johnson, Awardscircuit.com

 

“While not quite as overtly philosophical as Linklater’s trilogy, writer/director Emily Ting’s own riff on the concept has a lot of the same magic, and for those who are looking for a film that explores modern love without relying on excessive clichés of the genre, this should work just fine.”

– Ben Pearson, Not Just New Movies
