Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong
Provided by Metacritic.com
Many filmmakers have tried in recent years, but few have nailed the elusive formula of the two-hander romantic comedy quite like Emily Ting with Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong.
Los Angeles Times
The immensely likable Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is a freshly contemporary change-up on the traditional cross-cultural romantic-comedy.
The Seattle Times
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.
The Hollywood Reporter
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 New York Times
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.
