"The Beautiful Country"
Directed by Hans Petter Moland
A young Vietnamese-American, Binh (Damien Ngyen, in an
impressive debut), leaves his terrible home life in Vietnam behind to find
his American G.I. father in Texas. His harrowing, epic journey around the
world on refugee ships introduces him to emotions and horrors that he had
never before known. A memorable look at the power of determination and love
in the face of unbelievable odds. Also features fine performances from Tim
Roth as a sympathetic, yet vicious ship captain, Bai Ling as a fellow
refugee who captures Binh's heart, and Nick Nolte. In English. 120 minutes.
