Houston Premieres Screening: You Are the Apple of My Eye
This coming-of-age charmer was a blockbuster in Taiwan in 2011. Adolescent Ko-Teng (Zhendong Ke) and his friends go through high school with a crush on honor student Shen Chia-Yi (Michelle Chen). Shen is chosen to tutor Ko, and when he begins to pursue Shen, she is hesitant. Eventually the two teens become a couple but are separated when they attend different colleges. Based on the director's own best-selling, semi-autobiographical novel, the film remained at the top of the Taiwan box office for more than a month.
For mature audiences only. The film will be introduced by ambassador Daniel T.C. Liao, director general of the Taipei Ecomic and Cultural Office in Houston.
