2015 Dallas International Film Festival: Jasmine
Dax Phelans’ Jasmine brings film noir to the streets of present day Hong Kong. This film is a true whodunit with the right amount of plot twists to keep an audience guessing.
A year after his wife’s murder, once-successful Hong Kong businessman Leonard To is still reeling from the tragedy. Having lost his job, friends and all sense of order in his life, Leonard becomes interested in a mysterious stranger he sees at his wife’s grave, believing him to be responsible for her death.
Phelan’s direction makes the vastness of Hong Kong seem intimate and foreboding. The end of this film will have audiences gasping and talking in the aisles.
