Ben Whishaw


16 Jan, 2014

In this drama, directed by Hong Khaou, Whishaw plays Richard, who tries to connect with a Cambodian-Chinese mother who is mourning the untimely death of her son. Through a translator they begin to piece together memories of a man they both loved. Co-starring Pei-pei Cheng and Andrew Leung.

Hmm, yes. It’s what brings them together and what’s keeping them apart. It’s a difficult mess of feelings, but I think it’s ultimately what brings about in the film its final note, I suppose, of hope or healing, or something—there has been an understanding and not on a level of language, but on a kind of deeper human level.
