The Third Wife

February 16, 2019, 10:00 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until February 17, 2019

In 19th century rural Vietnam, 14-year-old May becomes the third wife of a wealthy landowner. Her new home seems idyllic, her husband favors her, and she quickly becomes pregnant with what she hopes will be the prized male progeny. But trouble is brewing: she witnesses a forbidden tryst that will spark a chain reaction of misfortunes — and stir in May dormant urges. May learns women have few options. A prize-winner at Toronto and four other festivals, “this gorgeously intimate, evocative, and melancholy” debut from Ash Mayfair “derives its freshness… from a balance between compassion and restraint that most filmmakers take decades to achieve.” —Variety.

In Vietnamese with English subtitles. 96 min.

Screened as part of our Cinema Explorations winter film series.

Complimentary bagels provided by Bagel Mainea!
