The film "Looking For a Star" stands out in the new year movie season for its unique way of telling a modern day Cinderella story. What's so unique about it?
An oriental version of a modern day Cinderella, "Looking For a Star" follows the love story between a wealthy eligible bachelor and a working class casino dealer in Macao, played by Andy Lau and Shu Qi respectively.
This time around Andy Lau's character is not a successful career man involved in several relationships; nor is he a con artist who still has feelings for his ex-wife. In "Looking For a Star", Lau plays a millionaire who has gone through three unsuccessful marriages but is still waiting for his true love.
