China Lion Film Distribution has acquired the ensemble romantic comedy Women Who Flirt and set a Thanksgiving release date, with most U.S. and Canadian locations to debut the movie on Wednesday, November 26th, 2014. China Lion Australia/New Zealand will release the film the following day, Thursday, November 27th. Both North American audiences and audiences in Australia/New Zealand will be able to see the film ahead of the Mainland Chinese release on Friday, November 28th.
The Mandarin language film stars Zhou Xun (Painted Skin, The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate), Huang Xiao Ming (Eastern Bandits, The Guillotines), Sui Tang and Xie Yi Lin. Talented Hong Kong filmmaker Pang Ho-Cheung (Aberdeen, Vulgaria, Love in the Buff) directed the film, which has also been known as Women Who Know How to Flirt Are the Luckiest. Personally, I think the shorter English title is a great improvement

The film revolves around co-workers and longtime friends Angie (Zhou Xun) and Marco (Huang Xiao Ming). When Marco announces he’s seeing someone, it sends Angie on a mission to save him from his new and manipulative girlfriend Hailey (Tang Sui). With the help of a circle of friends led by May (Xie Yi Lin), Angie tries to convince him she’s the one for him.
China Lion Film will release Women Who Flirt in major metro areas throughout North America in addition to Australia and New Zealand, continuing its trend of releasing films day-and-date with Greater China; specific release locations will be announced on the company’s website, as well as its Facebook and Weibo.
The official website for the film is http://www.WomenWhoFlirt.com/.
China Lion Film Distribution recently released the film Breakup Buddies and But Always, films that respectively became the company’s #1 and #2 highest grossing pictures.
