That Henry Goulding is gorgeous is a given. That he plays gay in the upcoming Monsoon is reason to give this your full attention. In it, he is Kit, a Vietnam-born Brit who returns to the country of his birth after 30 years to find himself. Along the way he meets and falls in love with Lewis, played by Parker Sawyers, best known for starring as a young Barack Obama in the 2016 biopic Southside With You.
“Monsoon is a rich and poignant reflection on the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present,” the film’s synopsis reads in part. “Kit (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians) returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was 6 years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war.”
So far, there is no theatrical release date for Monsoon due to the pandemic. But watch the achingly beautiful full trailer movie below.
