Sean Wang’s new film was the talk of the town at Sundance this year and the film is heading into UK cinemas in August. Watch the Dìdi trailer here. 


First-time director took Park City by storm in January with his debut film Dìdi. The heartfelt coming-of-age story received rave reviews from critics and went on to win the U.S Dramatic Audience Awards at the festival. The film also earned the Jury Prize for best U.S Dramatic Ensemble. 

Dìdi is gearing up to be released in the US in July, but us UK folk will have to wait a little longer for Dìdi as the film arrives on our screens in August. Thankfully though, there’s a new trailer for the film, which will get us through the next few months of waiting. 

Take a look at the Dìdi trailer below. 

Taking a page from Lady Bird’s book, Wang attempts to capture the specific flavour of growing up in the 2000s and more specifically, in the age of the internet. Our main character Chris, who goes by Dìdi, turns to Youtube to upload his own prank videos as well as for kissing advice. 

Izaak Wang stars as the titular Dìdi and is joined by Joan Chen, Shirley Chen, Chang Li Hua. Stephanie Hsu of Everything Everywhere All At Once fame appears as the Kissing Tutorial Instructor, too!

The film is also part of Sundance Film Festival: London programme, closing the festival on the 9th June.

Here’s the official synopsis too: In 2008, during the last month of summer before high school begins, an impressionable 13-year-old Taiwanese American boy learns what his family can’t teach him: how to skate, how to flirt, and how to love your mom.

Dìdi will be in US cinemas 26th of July and in UK cinemas 2nd August.
