Vietnamese Historical Drama – The Third Wife
The Third Wife is a fascinating historical drama, so you’ll want to watch it and step back in time to 19th century Vietnam.
It is a touching story that explores issues of class, power, sexuality and the patriarchy.
Obviously, the practice of powerful men taking on a third wife is no longer common, but it is valuable to understand history and its impact on individuals.
It was easy to get involved with the story and interesting to imagine the choices I would make, if I were in a similar situation.
The film is not for kids, since it explores adult subjects. It would be a good choice as a conversation starter for date night.
This award winning indie film has won awards at film festivals around the world.
It is now available on DVD in the US for the first time, so you’ll want to make plans to watch it.
