Innocent | Chicago Reader


This downbeat video drama by writer-director Simon Chung is worth a look for its glimpse of Chinese-Canadian life—and for Timothy Lee's enigmatic performance as Eric, a Hong Kong teen who immigrates to Toronto with his family in search of a better life. While his parents' marriage crumbles, Eric searches for love in a foreign, sometimes hostile environment. Unfortunately he has a knack for choosing the wrong guys, including a fickle, middle-aged white lawyer who has a thing for Asians and a handsome classmate whose rebuff triggers Eric's self-destructive recklessness. In English and subtitled Mandarin and Cantonese. 80 min.
