Suk Suk (2019)

Hong Kong director Ray Yeung broaches precisely that topic and doubles down with a moving portrait of a gay couple in their golden years in his latest, Suk Suk.

Suk Suk is Yeung’s most accomplished, mature film to date, and he demonstrates a keen eye for the social dynamics that impact us and how we respond to them, and finds space to bask in the simple pleasures, basic generosity and the safety net that is family while simultaneously dealing with homophobia, ageism and faith.

Elizabeth Kerr, The Hollywood Reporter

A poignant look at a gay and gray relationship in Hong Kong.

Ray Yeung’s sympathetic and non-judgmental screenplay is full of smartly observed, naturalistic moments which detail the family lives of his two protagonists and their feelings of obligation to those they brought into the world.
