★★★★ "Beautifully shot and subtly delivered, Monsoon offers a poignant picture of the emigrant experience as well as Vietnam's post-war hangover, while cementing Henry Golding's position as a leading man to watch." - Empire Magazine. 

Kit (Henry Golding) a British Vietnamese man, returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was six years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness. 

MONSOON is a rich and poignant reflection on the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present. By tackling the personal and political legacies that have shaped them, Kit, Lewis (Parker Sawyers) and Linh (Molly Harris) can start to write an exciting new chapter in their lives.

★★★★ "A thoughtful, deeply felt movie of great sweetness. Its intelligence is a tonic." - The Guardian 

★★★★ "An elegant study of cultural alienation and displacement" - The Skinny 

"A touching, thoughtful and gorgeously shot piece of work" - Screen International 

"A precisely considered expression of the untethered experience of migration" - Sight and Sound 

"An intimate drama of suprising depth" - Hollywood Reporter 

"Strikingly authentic" - Flickering Myth 

★★★★ - Radio Times  |  ★★★★ - Financial Times  |  ★★★★ - Little White Lies  |  ★★★★ - Daily Mirror
