Klamath County Library screening The Third Wife at Foreign Film Night
Tuesday, September 10th 5:30PM
Downtown Klamath County Library
The downtown Klamath County Library will screen the Vietnamese period drama The Third Wife on Tuesday, September 10th at 5:30 pm!
In 19th century rural Vietnam, 14-year-old May becomes the third wife of a wealthy landowner, and as she carefully observes the dynamics of her new family, it becomes obvious early on that May’s only path to status is by giving birth to a male heir. Hemmed in on all sides by the patriarchal expectations of her society – and awakening to the forbidden love of her true sexuality – May doesn’t have many options for freedom. But she might reach for it regardless…
The Third Wife is Rated R, in Vietnamese with English subtitles, and runs for 1 hour, 38 minutes.
