Gay landlord Wai-Tung Gao agrees to marry his tenant Wei-Wei, a struggling artist, to help her obtain a green card and appease his conservative parents back in Taiwan. It’s a win-win until his family announces a trip to visit them in New York and the faux couple have to orchestrate a full-blown wedding extravaganza, hiding their secret marriage of convenience and Wai-Tung’s inconvenient live-in boyfriend Simon.

This touching, riotously funny Academy Award-nominated comedy marks the second of many fruitful collaborations between director Ang Lee and writer/producer James Schamus.
