“Remember what we said when we got married? That we’d go to America and save each other.”

Indescribably beautiful (the score especially took me by surprise) and overflowing with genuine heart, it’s clear how close this story is to Lee Isaac Chung. At a loss for words worthy of this but as the son of a Vietnamese woman who left her country after war in hopes of a brighter future... god this fucking hit. What a perfect movie to end the year with... the American dream is a scam!
