My Prince Edward

A well produced showcase of some of the struggles that young women in Hong Kong grapple with.


My Prince Edward

Serving countless newlyweds in Hong Kong's go-to one-stop-shop of cheap wedding supplies doesn't exempt Fong from social pressure to marry. Since nodding to Edward's proposal, she has been pushed beyond limits by unaffordable housing, archaic customs, and intrusive in-laws. What befuddles her further is the reappearance of Shuwei, a mainlander she's supposed to be divorced from out of a sham marriage that solved her coming-of-age hardship. Zeroing in on nuts and bolts of modern marriage, My Prince Edward pokes around fixated correlations of freedom with relationship status and geographic residence. Like a breath of fresh air out of the breathless space it navigates, the whimsical gem contributes a rare humane take on the worldly metropolis's divisions with humor and wisdom. As Fong redefines her best life and writer-director Norris Wong reclaims her home city's narrative from outsiders in this debut, their courage sparks thrills and will make you wholeheartedly cheer for a woman's independence and a new age in Hong Kong cinema.

On the surface, My Prince Edward has all the trappings of a romantic comedy. Hong Kong bridal shop worker Fong (Stephy Tang)’s long-term boyfriend Edward (Chu Pak-hong) proposes to her, but there’s a catch—Fong’s already married to mainlander Yang Shuwei (Jin Kaijie) in a secret fake marriage.
