Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong (2015)

Promising premise, lackluster execution, lousy ending.

Regan Humphrey

Ruby Lin (Jamie Chung) and Josh Rosenberg (Bryan Greenberg) meet by chance one night in Hong Kong, when Ruby finds herself helplessly lost on the way to a gathering with friends. Josh offers to escort her there, and from the friction between their personalities, sparks fly—so much so, that Ruby expects their meeting will end in a date. Until Josh reveals that he has a girlfriend. They part ways unhappily, Ruby feeling tricked.

Their acquaintance picks up a year later, after Ruby has relocated to Hong Kong. They bump into each other on the Star Ferry, and hoping to make amends for misleading her the year before, Josh apologizes to Ruby, which ultimately leads to another night of walking, talking and sparks flying. By the end, their chemistry is undeniable—Together or separately, they must answer a question: Should they again part ways or should they jump ship on their respective relationships to take a chance on the connection they’ve made with each other?
