Luk Yee-sum, Pang Ho-cheung’s screenwriting collaborator, offers a saucy, sincere, and nonjudgmental spin on the coming-of-age story. Virginal and nerdy Tracy (Kwok Yik-sum) moves into an apartment owned by Alice (Fish Liew), who sells sex via WeChat. Tracy’s friend Chloe (Mak Tsz-yi) also moves in with the pair and bonds with Alice over their shared side business. Tracy wants sexual experience so she can pursue Andrew (Tse Sit-chun), a hunky jock that all the girls have eyes for, but she gets cold feet about joining the trade until she meets Raymond (Gregory Wong), who wants her services for a month. Beautifully shot, Lazy Crazy Hazy mixes roiling emotions, frank depictions of teenage sexuality, and a side of Hong Kong rarely seen into an incredibly smart (and sometimes blunt) film about relationships between young women on the verge of modern urban adulthood.
