Love Me Not
Saturday, Septmeber 7, 1:30 p.m.
Venue: Walter Reade Theater

Aggie might be in love with her roommate, Dennis. They’ve been friends since primary school and have lived in the same Hong Kong flat for years. But here’s the rub: Aggie’s a lesbian and Dennis is gay. Neither has ever been interested in the opposite sex. But love is complicated in Gilitte Leung’s dazzling Chinese romance, especially when Dennis gets wind of how Aggie feels. Suddenly, a loving relationship doesn’t look so bad, even if Dennis’s friends think he’s losing his mind.
