HA NOI (VNS) — The Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will open its April screening programme with two movies from the US and Taiwan.
The 2013 release, The Spectacular Now is a funny, compassionate and poignant look at young adulthood, written by (500) Days of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, directed by James Ponsoldt.
This adaptation of Tim Tharp's novel with the same name captures the insecurity and confusion of adolescence without looking for tidy truths.
The movie will be presented in original English-language version with Vietnamese subtitles.
The second screening at 2pm on Saturday will feature You're the Apple of My Eye — a 2011 Taiwanese romantic film based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Giddens Ko, who also made his directorial debut with the film.
Well received by film critics, the movie set box-office records in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Ko Chen-tung won the Best Newcomer Award at the Golden Horse Awards for his role in the film.
Both the screenings will take place at 51 Tran Hung Dao Street, 4th floor.. — VNS
