In 19th century rural Vietnam, 14-year-old May becomes the third wife of a wealthy landowner. Her new home seems idyllic, her husband favors her, and she quickly becomes pregnant with what she hopes will be the prized male progeny. But trouble is brewing: she witnesses a forbidden tryst that will spark a chain reaction of misfortunes – and stir in May dormant urges. May learns women have few options. A prize-winner at Toronto and four other festivals, “this gorgeously intimate, evocative, and melancholy debut (from Ash Mayfair) derives its freshness from a balance between compassion and restraint that most filmmakers take decades to achieve. – Variety.
