★★★★ "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.
