I WILL MAKE YOU MINE, the new film from writer/director/actor Lynn Chen (SAVING FACE, SHAMELESS), will have its world premiere at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival. Gravitas Ventures will release the film on demand starting May 26.
The film is part of the SURROGATE VALENTINE trilogy. I WILL MAKE YOU MINE stars singer/actor Goh Nakamura (AMERICAN GANGSTER, SURROGATE VALENTINE), Lynn Chen, Yea-Ming Chen (DAYLIGHT SAVINGS), Ayako Fujitani (GAMERA Trilogy, MAN FROM RENO), Tamlyn Tomita (THE KARATE KID PART II, THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE) and introducing Ayami Riley.
Rachel (Lynn Chen) lives in idle luxury with a cheating husband, Professor Erika (Ayako Fujitani) juggles career demands while raising her daughter Sachiko (newcomer Ayami Riley Tomine), and struggling musician Yea-Ming (Yea-Ming Chen) is still chasing a fast-fading dream. Three women who could not be more different have one thing in common: their flawed romantic history with singer-songwriter Goh Nakamura (himself). When the amiable but unreliable Goh ambles back into town and into their lives, the past comes roaring back. This semi-sequel to SURROGATE VALENTINE (SXSW 2011) and DAYLIGHT SAVINGS (SXSW 2012) revisits the characters in a stand-alone story with a fresh new perspective.
