Win tickets to Mark Lee's Golden Horse-nominated movie

Before the results of this year’s Golden Horse Awards are announced on Nov 21, take the opportunity to catch local actor Mark Lee’s critically-acclaimed performance in his new Mandarin-language local movie Number 1, which garnered the veteran comedian a Best Leading Actor nomination at Taiwan’s version of the Oscars.

Currently showing in cinemas and directed by Ong Kuo Sin, it is a heartwarming musical family comedy that follows the story of Chow Chee Beng (Lee), a middle-aged white collar manager who is retrenched by his company. 

After many failed interviews, he reluctantly takes a job as a manager at Number One, a popular drag club. 

Soon, he is roped into dressing up to join the drag queens on stage. And to everyone’s surprise, he turns out to be a natural drag queen who wows audiences.

Number 1, which is rated NC16 and also stars Henry Thia and Jaspers Lai, is also nominated for Best Makeup & Costume Design at the Golden Horse Awards.
