20 LGBT Movies That Everyone Should See Image via Kino International

Happy Together (1997)

Director: Wong Kar-wai
Stars: Leslie Cheung, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Chen Chang, Gregory Dayton

Hong Kong's great director of love stories, Wong Kar-wai examined the disintegration of a gay couple's relationship as the two men travel abroad in Argentina. Everyone knows this story, has seen that couple trying to fix everything with one big trip. Ho Po-Wing (Leslie Cheung) and Lai Yiu-fai (Tony Leung Chiu-Wai) are that couple in Happy Together. It's beautiful and sad and lovely to look at, like all of the director's films. Just prepare yourself. This picture wounds you in ways that are all too familiar. —RS
