- With Goh Nakamura, Yea-ming Chen
Singer/songwriter Goh Nakamura reprises his deadpan role as king of the romantic losers in this episodic road movie sequel to last year’s SURROGATE VALENTINE. The singer’s jingle for “Relatrix,” an anti-depressant, appears to have the TV half-life of nuclear waste, while his relationship with Erika, an emotionally prickly professor, looks like past history. An impulsive pursuit of the alluringly punkish chanteuse Yea-ming (Chen, guitarist for the band DreamDate) leads to Las Vegas via a disastrous but goofy adventure in atmospheric San Juan Bautista. HDCAM video. (BS)
Director Dave Boyle and actor Goh Nakamura will be present for audience discussion on Friday.
