Better Days (Derek Tsang, 2019, China/Hong Kong, 135 min.)

Chinese screen idols Zhou Dongyu and Jackson Yee star in this blockbuster about a pair of star-crossed lovers: a brutally bullied high-school student and her unlikely protector, a teenage street thug in need of redemption. As Nian (Zhou) prepares for her college entrance exam, she is targeted by her peers at school. Fate brings her together with small-time criminal Bei (Yee), but before they can retreat into a world of their own, they are dragged into a murder investigation that will change their lives forever. In this romantic thriller, Derek Kwok-Cheung Tsang exposes the oppressive societal demands imposed on today’s youth. (Toronto International Film Festival)
