Dear Ex – Film Screening
When the husband who left her three years previously finally dies from liver cancer, Sanlian (Ying-Xuan Hsieh) is forced to confront the realities of her relationship. Before his death, Song Zhengyuan (Spark Chen) signed over the life insurance policy which was intended to pay for the education of his teenage son, Song Chengxi (Joseph Huang). The new beneficiary is Jay (Roy Chiu), Zhengyuan’s male lover. Sanlian is stridently furious about this. But, increasingly at odds with his mother, Song Chengxi is fascinated by Jay, and takes up residence in Jay’s gaudy and somewhat insalubrious apartment. Over the course of the film, he gets to know the man that his father loved, and this comic melodrama wrings every last drop of drama from the set up.
