Best Gay movie ever
30 April 2016 | by charles_chankinSee all my reviews

Out of words to describe this movie with a beautiful story line. Not many gay movies portraying gay Asian culture. Still taboo within the Asian community. This one was funny but the end was kind of sad. Actors Jake Choi played so well and so did James Chen with his funny Chinese accent. "Front cover" will leave you wanting for more of such movies from the HK producer. That's a movie you won't be tired of watching over and over again. We were really moved by the story and being Asian, my partner and I can relate to 'Ning' in some ways. It sort of took me back years ago when I used to hide as being gay. I highly recommend this movie!
