The Highest Grossing Foreign Film in U.S. of all time!
A special digitally updated re-release of the 2000 Ang Lee masterpiece martial arts drama that won four Oscars and two Golden Globe awards. It stars Michelle Yeoh, present-year Best Actress Oscar-winner. The visually stunning film takes place in 19th century Qing Dynasty China, where a warrior (Chow Yun-Fat) gives his sword, Green Destiny, to his lover (Michelle Yeoh) to deliver to safe keeping, but it is stolen, and the chase is on to find it. The search leads to the House of Yu where the story takes on a whole different level. (2000, PG-13, 2h)
“You may never see a more beautiful movie – and certainly no more majestic film has yet been made.” – William Gallagher, BBC
“So good, it reminds you how the best films transport you to another world.” – Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“What to say about this cinema legend in re-release but ‘magnificent.’ The feminist statement, the fight choreography (ballet-like in parts), the magical realism (superheroes b/f those films) and Michelle Yeoh! It has everything everywhere, to use a term.” – Patrick McDonald, HollywoodChicago.com
