Event description
For our June film discussion, join us for a discussion of an offbeat, emotional and romantic movie, Dear Ex!

About this event

June is no doubt a special month for LGBTQ Community. Various events are held to recognize the current issues of this community. Let's discuss this movie to celebrate Pride month.

This movie tells the story of a teenage boy navigating a bitter feud between his willful mother and a free-spirited man, who turned out to be the lover and insurance beneficiary of his recently deceased father. This film was originally called "誰先愛上他的", which means "who loved him first." This newly released film is directed by Mag Hsu and Hsu Chih-yen and is one of the most tear jerking and stunning dramas released in the LGBTQ genre. The characters are three-dimensional, the dialogue is mesmerizing, and the plot reflects the reality of the human condition.

See the trailer below, then watch the full movie on Netflix!

Participants will screen the movie on their own and join the Zoom meeting for a lively and engaging discussion about the film.
