“I am thrilled to be opening The People Ive Slept With in New York at the Clearview Chelsea Cinemas. It’s an indie filmmaker’s dream come true, says director Quentin Lee. With the film closing the New York International Asian American Film Festival, I believe many New Yorkers will enjoy and support the adventures of the films heroine.
The People Ive Slept With is a sexy, romantic story about Angela (Karin Anna Cheung of Better Luck Tomorrow), a young woman with a zealously active sex life, who after every sexual conquest, makes keepsake baseball cards of each of her male conquests. One day, Angela finds out she is pregnant and begins a quest to find the identity of the father. Together with her gay, best friend and co-worker Gabriel (Wilson Cruz of Hes Just Not That Into You, My So-Called Life), the two go on a comical and raunchy hunt through her past hook-ups and dates to find her baby daddy. But as Angela peels back the layers of her frisky past, she begins to realize that the answers she is looking for, reveal themselves in surprising ways.
Featuring a sparkling and daring performance by Karin Anna Cheung (Better Luck Tommorow),
The People Ive Slept With co-stars Archie Kao (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Lynn Chen (Lakeview Terrace, Saving Face) and screen legend James Shigeta (Flower Drum Song, The Crimson Kimono). The film has found strong support with sold out festival screenings including Hawaii International Film Festival, San Francisco Intl Asian American Film Festival, Outfest Fusion, along with being selected as the official Closing Night Presentation of the upcoming 2010 New York Asian American Film Festival on July 21. The film is set to open theatrically in Los Angeles at Laemmles Sunset 5, August 27 and San Francisco at the VIZ CINEMAS, September 3.
