Ang Lee’s The Wedding Banquet

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Join us for a 25th anniversary screening of THE WEDDING BANQUET, Ang Lee’s Oscar-nominated romantic comedy about a gay couple in New York and their friend in need of a green card. “A very adroit and entertaining social comedy,” in the words of Jonathan Rosenbaum, and “a sweet, perceptive story about the cost of deception and the power of family rituals,” according to Megan Rosenfeld, THE WEDDING BANQUET stars May Chin, Winston Chao, Mitchell Lichtenstein, Ah-Lei Gua, and Sihung Lung. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow, ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
