Widely considered China's best film, Farewell My Concubine is the beautifully wrought story of two male stars in a Beijing opera troupe and the woman who comes between them. What gives it its edge is the exploration of the effect of China’s mid-century turmoil on people’s lives. Directed by renowned 5th-generation director Chen Kaige and starring legends Leslie Cheung, Gong Li, and Zhang Fengyi, the film won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival as well as a host of other international awards. Film starts at 6.30, happy hour with Peddlers gin cocktails beforehand.
