Press: Xtra Toronto "I was surprised and pleased when I heard about Everything and Everyone, a charming new movie by Vancouver indie filmmaker Ian Tang. The film is a real ensemble piece, featuring a series of interwoven stories about a disparate group of family and friends. And unlike my previous examples, Tang’s gay characters focus on action of the fully-clothed kind."
Toronto, Canada: Theatrical Release Screening Dec. 2 to 8, 2011 Projection Booth Theatre 1035 Gerrard St. E
Montreal image+nation Festival International Cinema LGBT Screening Oct. 28, 2011 "...a showcase for some of the best acting talent Canada’s west coast has to offer. Gabrielle Rose is typically elegant as the matriarch facing down her exit from this world. Ryan Robbins has tremendous screen presence as the actor who can’t face his mother’s illness, while neglecting his own son’s needs. Lane Edwards is pitch-perfect in an understated turn as a man eager to bring his troubled boyfriend some peace and intimacy. And Chad Willett, one of Canada’s most promising young actors, is tremendous as a psychologically scarred, self-hating gay man."
Vancouver International Film Festival World Premiere Oct. 12 (SOLD OUT) & 13, 2011 "Themes of love, loss, laughter and acceptance all intertwine within this impressive first feature script from Ian Tang. A compelling story and Tracy D. Smith's skilled, sensitive direction allow the stellar cast to shine as a variety of relationships are explored..."
Press: Homorazzi All of You Should Watch Everything & Everyone "I would recommend this film to anyone who likes the realistic view of life movies take. I could also see maybe the 30-40 somethings really enjoying this flick because they might be able to relate to some of the characters better than the new younger generation could. In saying that though I do believe everyone could learn something from watching this movie and will say if you have the chance to go, please do."
