Movie Review: The Perfect Plan Kế Hoạch Hoàn Hảo

I've reported previously about the Vietnamese government's efforts to consider approving same-sex marriage. From the party's perspective, there's a practical reason for this. "Property" relations become way too complicated for long term same sex partners with respect to government officials. So they are considering legal changes to accommodate this.


But this movie is not about creeping capitalism in a socialist state. It's about two young men who deeply love each other having to deal with negotiating family expectations of themselves and their future.

Enter Mom. I won't tell you how the story ends so as to disappoint or get your hopes up. I'll just end it here by saying its worth the watch. Especially if you are struggling with complex family issues regarding acceptance of your own singularity and destiny.
