China, 2015

China Lion Film Distribution has acquired and will release the drama Lost And Love (Shi Gu), which stars Hong Kong acting legend Andy Lau. East West Bank will be the official sponsor of the North America release.

Lost And Love will open March 20th, 2015, in select theaters throughout the US and Canada, including Boston, Calgary, Chicago, Edmonton, Lansing, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, the Orange County/Irvine/Tustin area, San Diego, San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver, as well as throughout Australia and New Zealand, all day-and-date with the Chinese Mainland release.

By opening with the worldwide release, China Lion will allow audiences in both the U.S. and Canada to see the film at the same time as Mainland audiences. A complete theatre listing will be available in the coming weeks at the company’s official website, www.chinalionentertainment.com.

In addition to Lau, the film also stars Jing Boran, who co-starred in Rise of the Legend, The Guillotines and Love In Space and features special appearances by Sandra Ng and Tony Leung Ka-fai. It details a true story from the Hubei province of China about a father’s search for his long lost son after a suspected child abduction. The film is produced by Wang Zhonglei, Chan Pui-wah and Zhang Dajun and by the Huayi Bros. Media Group, Beijing Yuanhesheng Entertainment, Chongqing Film Group, Xiamen Navigation Media and Good Friends Entertainment. The film was acquired from IM Global, a leading independent film and television financing, sales and distribution company. Lau previously starred in the critically acclaimed China Lion Film release A Simple Life, directed by Ann Hui.

After losing his two-year-old son, Lei (Andy Lau) begins a fourteen-year-long quest in search of his missing child. On the road, he makes a stop at a repair shop where he comes across a young repairman, Ceng (Jing Boran), who was also kidnapped at the age of four. Robbed of the life he was meant to live, Ceng can only vaguely remember snippets of home — a chain-link bridge, bamboo trees, and his mother’s long braids. Lost And Love (Shi Gu) is an uplifting portrait of two lost souls who forge an unlikely friendship and, in the face of a hopelessness and despair, inspire courage and perseverance in one another.
