WHAT: LADIES FIRST

A love rectangle for the ages! Girls-next-door Jeannette Lin Tsui and Christine Pai Lu-ming encounter beefcake Roy Chiao and skinny Tien Ching on the beaches of Hong Kong, and hilarity ensues. This is Hong Kong romancing the 1960s way, with a generation of youth freed from parental pressures, brought together by bathing suits and telephones, and dazed with the joys of a new middle class lifestyle comprised of dining and dancing. Before the kung fu takeover in the late 1960s, Mandarin-dialect cinema in Hong Kong was dominated by the women: strong-willed, charismatic, and fashionable actresses who defied traditional fathers and hooked young men struggling to keep up.

    I'll be in my Viet 101 class at Mesa, otherwise, it looks like a great event.
