“…leaves you with a devastating sense of just how violent it is to tear someone away from the only family — and the only country — they’ve ever known.” NPR

An official selection of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival from award-winning writer/director Justin Chon, Blue Bayou is the moving and timely story of a uniquely American family fighting for their future. Antonio LeBlanc (Chon), a Korean adoptee raised in a small town in the Louisiana bayou, is married to the love of his life Kathy (Alicia Vikander) and step-dad to their beloved daughter Jessie. Struggling to make a better life for his family, he must confront the ghosts of his past when he discovers that he could be deported from the only country he has ever called home.

Blue Bayou is released in cinemas on November 18.

In September, members of ClubInk (our own movie club, details here) receive an in-season double pass to Blue Bayou.
