Watch the trailer.

Legendary Taiwanese actress and director Sylvia Chang plays a dying woman in Love Education, her latest effort. Memories of her father inspire the woman to move his grave from his home village to the family’s current city. But his feisty first wife refuses, touching off a family scuffle that becomes a social media sensation. Also starring the equally legendary Tian Zhuangzhuang (director of The Blue Kite and Springtime in a Small Town), this warm family drama examines Chinese history and tradition through the perspectives of three generations of women. Maggie Lee of Variety described the film as “rippling with gentle irony and worldly wisdom on the philosophy of love.” (Dir.: Sylvia Chang, China/Taiwan, 2017, 120 min., DCP, Mandarin with English subtitles)
