“If you love something, it will take you somewhere.” This is the philosophy that a 30-year-old man-child has adopted since his high school days. Skipping over all of the most pivotal moments and lessons of one’s 20s, Kao devotes 10 years of his early adulthood to being best in the world at competitive cup stacking. Dedicating herself to the role of supportive girlfriend, Jay consequently gives up her formative decade by taking on every responsibility called upon Kao that “distracts” him from his cups.
In a not-so-subtle awakening, Jay discovers that being a cup-stacker’s assistant cannot fulfill her own goals of having a family, leaving Kao and his cups to fend for themselves. From fixing their home’s water system to pulling hair from the shower drain, Kao is now left to face the consequences of his neglect and immaturity. The naivety of devoting himself to one goal for the rest of his life forces him to accept the challenges of adulthood and the obligations of being a friend, boyfriend, son, and functioning human being.
FAST & FEEL LOVE is 2 Fast And 2 Furious…cup stacking edition. Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (Mary is Happy, Mary is Happy, SDAFF ‘13; Heart Attack, SDAFF Spring Showcase ‘16) cleverly captures a millennial cup stacker’s coming of age disguised in an action movie. Action-packed, fast-paced, and riddled with jokes and filmic references, Nawapol delivers a much too relatable depiction of a quarter-life crisis.
