About this item

Gao Wai-Tung (Winston Chao) lives the good life: He runs a successful real-estate business in New York and has a wonderful relationship with his lover, Simon (Mitchell Lichtenstein). The only problem is that his elderly parents in Taiwan don't know he's gay--and they're pushing him to get married and present them with a grandchild. So, with Simon's approval, Wai-Tung strikes a bargain with Wei-Wei (May Chin), a charming young Chinese woman who is one of his tenants. If she'll marry him, he'll help her get a green card so she can stay in the United States. The charade culiminates in an elaborate Chinese banquet that no one will soon forget.

The second in director Ang Lee's Father Knows Best trilogy (completed by PUSHING HANDS and EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN), THE WEDDING BANQUET established Lee as a superior observer of intimate and domestic life. Cultural miscommunication, the obligations of tradition, and the difficulty of coming out as gay are all depicted with both hilarity and heartbreaking reality.
