The Leap Years
Mediacorp Raintree’s latest film, The Leap Years, hits the screens next week on 29 February 2008 and is directed by Jean Yeo.
Starring Wong Li-Lin, Qi Yuwu and Thai artiste Ananda Everingham, the film is based on a novella by well-acclaimed writer Dr Catherine Lim, and tells the story of young Singaporean girl having chance upon her special someone on 29th February.
She decides to base her intuition on an Irish leap year tradition that no man will refuse any request of a lady and invites him out for a date. Together, they embark on a romantic journey that spans over 12 years, meeting only thrice in 12 years, on the leap year.
