The Beautiful Country

Norwegian filmmaker Hans Peter Moland (Aberdeen, Zero Kelvin) direct this emotional odyssey about a young half-Vietnamese man (first-time actor Damien Nguyen) who endures racism and hardship in a quest to find his father, an American G.I. who served in the Vietnam war. Sparse, beautiful and occasionally quite slow, this episodic drama is (not so surprisingly) produced by lovely lingerer Terrence Malick (Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line). Nick Nolte and Tim Roth round out the mostly Asian cast. In English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Vietnamese with English subtitles. 125 minutes
