Peccadillo Pictures have announced the home entertainment release of their critically acclaimed Monsoon directed by Hong Khaou (Lilting). Sadly rarely seen in cinemas but now you will be able to own from next month.
Monsoon is a visual and emotional tour de force with a tender performance from Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, The Gentlemen). The film is a rich and poignant exploration of the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present.
Scott J.Davis reviewed the film recently describing the film as ” a rich, moving, and heartfelt film about family, grief, love, and the tough decisions we all make during our lifetimes while being a quiet reflection on life itself. And tea, the magic elixir to make any dark moments feel a little brighter“.

Kit (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians) 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.
