TAP-Chicago Movie Night: You Are the Apple of My Eye (那些年,我們一起追的女孩)

You Are the Apple of My Eye is a Taiwanese romantic comedy based in central Taiwan. It is the story between a mischievous student, Ko Ching-teng, and an honor-roll student, Shen Chia-yi, who is very popular amongst the boys in her class.

At the 48th Golden Horse Awards, Michelle Chen was nominated for Best Actress, Ko Chen-tung for Best New Actor, Giddens Ko as Best New Director, and 「Those Years」 as Best Original Film Song. The movie will be in Mandarin but there will be English subtitles.

The movie will start at 4pm but come a little early and enjoy appetizers and drink specials, courtesy of the Pump Room.

For the folks who register early, there will also be dinner afterward at the hottest restaurant in Chinatown, MingHin Cuisine. Dinner will be hosted in their elaborately decorated private room, with a set course diligently prepared by their chefs.
