The Third Wife

The Third Wife

Directed by Ash Mayfair

In late 19th century Vietnam, fourteen-year-old May becomes the third wife to a wealthy landowner. She quickly learns that she can gain status and security if she gives birth to a male child, but her burgeoning attraction to Xuan, the second wife, puts her fragile standing in jeopardy. As May observes the unfolding tragedy of forbidden love and its devastating consequences, she must make a choice, to either carry on in silence, or forge a path towards personal freedom.

After becoming the third wife to a wealthy landowner in 19th century Vietnam, May struggles with family and the prospects of motherhood.

Excellent! Dark, spiritual and cultural. The strength of these women spiritually, emotionally and physically is something incredible.

Cinematography of great beauty and sensitivity with closed captions to emphasize and elucidate the more complex periods of Vietnamese expression. Amazing capacity to create full sense of “presence” in era and locale.

I enjoyed this movie. I appreciated the background scenes, drama, storyline, and the attention to detail in the dress and the daily life of characters.
