Upcoming Club Releases
This month’s Film Club selection is WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW?, a movie from Taiwan by Arvin Chen. Read on for more about why this film is part of our Film of the Month Club.
We could say that we acquired this film because of its delightfully charming karaoke scene, and we wouldn’t be lying. But there’s so much more to Arvin Chen’s work than flourish and whimsy, and there’s plenty of that. The story—or stories, because there are several, like variations on a theme—is in essence about being true to oneself, and those close to you, in order to find happiness. The main character happens to be gay, and the film does touch on the difficulties of homosexuals coming out publicly under the pressures of Taiwanese society and family traditions. However, this is not merely a film about gay issues, but rather about honesty when it comes to relationships, both gay and straight.
It’s obvious that Chen understands and respects all of his characters, making it easy for any audience member to identify with them. And he achieves a satisfying happy ending for all without it seeming fake or being sappy. We’re confident you will be completely taken by Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?, and even dare to guarantee that next time you do karaoke with your co-workers, you will get an uncontrollable urge to sing the title song to them as if your life depended on it. Just like the film, it will take a long time to get it out of your head.
