Featuring twenty main characters including Jia Baoyu, Lin Daiyu, Xue Baochai, and Wang Xifeng in a beautiful display in the long scroll of the Grand View Garden, the movie is sure to captivate audiences.

With a meticulous attention to detail, the crew meticulously reconstructed over 40 courtyard pavilions, including iconic structures like Yihong Courtyard and Xiaoxiang Pavilion. Every aspect of the building, from the traditional mortise and tenon structure to the carefully crafted fake stones, highlights the dedication to authenticity.

As writer Jiang Xun once described, the Grand View Garden is a “kingdom of youth.” Hu Mei echoed this sentiment by stating that the movie’s theme is “Long Live Youth,” showcasing the beauty and authenticity of the characters amidst a backdrop of family decline.

With its commitment to authenticity and a fresh perspective, “Dream of Red Mansions: The Golden Marriage” promises to bring the classic tale to life for a new generation of viewers.
