Goodbye Mother (Thưa Mẹ Con Đi) (On Demand)

The universal tale of the prodigal son returning is given a Vietnamese twist in Goodbye Mother. When Van returns from the United States, he brings with him plans to come out and introduce his boyfriend, Ian, to his mother. But when he discovers his mother is ill, he finds himself in a predicament between familial responsibility and leading the life he chose.

At times funny, always heartwarming and with a scene-stealing grandma and two very attractive leading men, this film is a beautiful, moving and captivating homage to a particular gay Vietnamese experience. You will find yourself swept up in life in rural Vietnam, and eager to choose your destiny alongside Van.
