So Young (film)
So Young (simplified Chinese: 致我们终将逝去的青春; traditional Chinese: 致我們終將逝去的青春) is a 2013 Chinese drama film directed by Zhao Wei. It is based on the best-selling novel of the same name To Our Youth that is Fading Awayby Xin Yiwu. The film is Zhao’s directorial debut.
The film’s English-language title alludes to the song So Young by the British alternative rock band Suede from their self-titled debut album. In addition to the novel, the film was also based in part by Zhao’s own personal college experience in the 1990s.
The film has become a major success at the Chinese box office, grossing over US$118 million with a US$5 million budget.
