"Funny, beautifully observed sexual relationships." -VarietyWu, an attractive and successful ophthalmologist, places a personal ad in a newspaper to try to meet the Mr. Right who she'll be able to marry, A succession of blind dates ensues, featuring men who are lonely, desperate , strange, perverted, or all of the above. From a tight-fisted businessman to a shy writer who brings his mother, to a shoe fetish and a pimp looking for call girls, even a B-actor (in disguise) "doing research", Wu sees them all and patiently listens to their spiel. What they don't know is that Wu has a mysterious ex-lover who may (or may not) be the man she truly seeks. Honored at the Cannes Film Festival (Un Certain Regard), The Personals' Rene Liu gives a lustrous performance as Wu, the complicated and strong-willed woman navigating through a world of thwarted dreams and endless longing.
