“How old are you really? Are you back for good?” The Cinema Guild has released an official US trailer for the latest film from prolific Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, titled On the Beach at Night Alone. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, where actress Kim Min-hee won the Silver Bear for Best Actress. It also played at the Los Angeles, Melbourne, Zurich, New York and London Film Festivals. “Art imitates life in this quietly devastating masterpiece” about an actress who wanders around a seaside town, thinking about her relationship with a married man. The film stars Kim Min-hee, Seo Younghwa, Jung Jaeyoung, and Moon Sungkeun. Hong Sang-soo is beloved by critics, but he’s kind of an acquired taste, making slow moving but deeply contemplative films. His latest might be worth your time to discover. ›››

Uber announced that the price hike starting Monday would affect UberX, UberBlack and UberAssist services.
The company will also be introducing an additional booking fee of $ 0.64 (HK$ 5).
For UberX for example, the minimum fare from Kowloon to the New Territories would be raised from $ 3.20 (HK$ 25) to $ 5.11 (HK$ 40) — with the booking fee charge, that’s $ 5.75 (HK$ 45). Read more…
