Wong Fu fans, this one's for you. Popular online content creators Wong Fu Productions have made the leap to movies with their first feature film Everything Before Us. Hot off their world premiere at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, the movie is now available for streaming from Vimeo.
Everything Before Us, directed by Philip Wang and Wesley Chan, and starring Aaron Yoo, Brittany Ishibashi, Brandon Soo Hoo and Victoria Park, tells the story of two couples experiencing the challenges of romantic relationships, while dealing with the Department of Emotional Integrity, a government organization that assigns publicly viewable relationship scores that affect various aspects of daily life.
Here's the trailer:
Here's the film's full synopsis:
In the near future, all romantic relationships are overseen by the D.E.I. -- The Department Of Emotional Integrity. Much like a credit score is given to represent financial responsibility, a 'relationship score' is given to keep people accountable for their romantic activity and choices. The score is public for all to see and affects various aspects of daily life.
Ben and Sara, a former couple in their early 30s, must meet again to settle a conflicting score and reconcile the reasons their relationship fell apart.
Seth and Haley decide to enter their first registered relationship together after just graduating high school. With bright eyes, innocent hearts, and a naive view of what love could be, they face a long distance relationship for the first time.
The two couples face different but intersecting challenges in love amidst the DEI rules.
The first feature film from Wong Fu Productions. The film stars Aaron Yoo ("Disturbia"), Ki Hong Lee ("The Maze Runner"), Randall Park ("Fresh off the Boat"), Brandon Soo Hoo ("From Dusk Til Dawn"), Brittany Ishibashi ("Political Animals") and Victoria Park ("Ravens Touch")
