Asians fame plays Kit, a gay British-Vietnamese man. He returns to Saigon from London for the first time since he was 6 years old, when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Sadly, Kit has come home to lay his late mother’s ashes to rest. He re-connects there with Lee, his estranged second cousin, and arranges an online date that turns into something more with Lewis (Parker Sawyers, who previously played a young Barack Obama in Southside With You). Lewis is a sexy clothing designer preparing to open his first shop in Vietnam. As Kit struggles to make sense of himself in a country he’s no longer familiar with, hooking up with some other men along the way, his personal journey opens up new possibilities for friendship, love and happiness. Khaou’s perceptive screenplay tackles many issues in a generally subtle way. These include en- during conflicts between the East and the West, including acceptance (or not) of different sexual orientations, as well as racial and generational differences. John Cummings’ striking music score also deserves mention. Monsoon emerges as an intelligent and touching film, well worth watching after a hearty Thanksgiving dinner.


onsoon is a modern-day story and has already been an awards contender. It will be available from Strand Releasing
