In this "lost in translation", cross-cultural romcom, a desperate American businessman, Daniel, is trying to land the deal of a lifetime in China. The biggest lesson he learned right away - bring your own translator. Linguistic and romantic hilarity ensues as Daniel finds himself romantically entangled with Xi Yian, the beautiful woman on the other side of the negotations table.
You will laugh out loud at this fun comedy that shows what can happen when cultures collide in a hilarious way. It's also a touching look at the value of collaboration and appreciation for cultural and linguistic differences. NOTE: Due to language and adult content, this show is recommended for ages 18+.
The movie will begin promptly at 12pm at The Chabot Theatre in Castro Valley. Doors open at 11:30am. For COVID safety all attendees must show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result received within 48 hours of showtime. Local COVID regulations at the time will be enforced.
