Triple bill of features from film-maker Ang Lee. 'Pushing Hands' (1992) follows retired t'ai chi master Mr. Chu (Sihung Lung) as he relocates from Beijing to the New York suburbs to live with his son Alex (Bo Z. Wang) and American daughter-in-law Martha (Deb Snyder). But he struggles to adapt to Western culture and his continued presence causes tension between his son and Martha, who is struggling to complete her second novel. In 'The Wedding Banquet' (1993), wealthy couple Wai-Tung Gao (Winston Chao) and his partner Simon (Mitchell Lichtenstein) are living the American dream in Manhattan. But Wai-Tung's parents are still putting pressure on their son to get married and have kids, unaware that he's gay. Simon proposes a marriage of convenience between Wai-Tung and his beautiful tenant, Wei-Wei (May Chin), who illegally sublets Wai-Tung's loft and is in need of a green card. As Wei-Wei moves in with the two men, Wai-Tung's parents arrive from Taiwan to attend their son's wedding. However, what began as a simple lie descends into a fully fledged farce as a small city hall ceremony transforms into an enormous wedding banquet and the truth is forced to come out. Set in Taipei, Taiwan, 'Eat Drink Man Woman' (1994), follows a family whose seemingly close ties unravel over a short period of time. Elderly widower Mr. Chu (Lung) is a top chef who loses his sense of taste and begins to lose patience with his three ungrateful daughters.
