'Crazy Rich Asians" Henry Golding offers a quiet portrayal of a Vietnamese man returning to his birthplace to rediscover his roots. Having lived in the UK since he was eight years old, Kit finds Saigon a strange and yet familiar land. He feels distant from family members but encounters an American man who offers him a sense of comfort. This gorgeous arthouse movie by Cambodian-British director Hong Khaou is loosely based on his own experience as a refugee. The film's observation of an immigrant's sentiment is touching, tender and poignant. Khaou's previous film, 'Lilting' was a festival hit and he brings an equally thoughtful and graceful film to our screens with 'Monsoon'.
