Gaps became an indie darling after showing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival.
Additionally, the indie romantic comedy marks the directorial debut of comedian Randall Park.
The film stars Justin H. Min (Beef, After that), Sherry-Cola (good problem, Claws), Ally Maki (Destroy, 10 things i hate about you) and Debby Ryan (Insatiable, jessy). Randall Park directed the film from Adrian Tomine’s adapted screenplay, based on his acclaimed graphic novel.
Here is the official synopsis of Gaps:
Ben, a struggling filmmaker, lives in Berkeley, California with his girlfriend, Miko, who works for a local Asian American film festival. When he’s not running an arthouse movie theater as his day job, Ben spends his time obsessing over unavailable blonde women, watching Criterion Collection DVDs, and dining at restaurants with his best. friend Alice, a queer graduate student with a habit of serial dating. When Miko moves to New York for an internship, Ben is left on his own and begins to explore what he might want.

Randall Park makes a decent directorial debut in this lighthearted Asian rom-com. He plays with some Asian preconceptions that turn out to be hilarious lessons. Ultimately, there is a strong desire for more of these types of films featuring Asians.
Gaps is in theaters on August 4, 2023.
