About the Movie
An epic story, exotic locales and electrifying performances from Bai Ling (Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow), Tim Roth (Dark Water) and Nick Nolte (Hotel Rwanda) highlight this moving film that celebrates the power of the human spirit. Raised as an orphan, Binh (Damien Nguyen) is a young Vietnamese man with one impossible dream: to be reunited with his birth father, an American G.I. who left without a trace. In an incredible odyssey that stretches from Saigon to New York to Texas, Binh confronts unimaginable hardships as he finds danger, love and, finally, the key to unlocking the mysteries of his past.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It is hard not to admire the independence and ambition of The Beautiful Country, even if the film does fall short of its epic intentions.
Fresh: An epic journey worth taking.
Fresh: Buoyed by a low-key perf from Tim Roth en route and a splendid showing by Nick Nolte in the powerful final reels.
Rotten: At times, the movie feels like a manufactured Asian Chocolat, which drives the label 'art house movie' even further into mainstream banality.
Touching fantastic film!!
Wow, I had not had a movie move me as deeply as this one did in a long time. The picture on the box does not do it justice. The story is based on a Vietnam's son who's father was a US solder and he never got to meet him. He is a misfit and mad fun of in his village because of his exceptional tallness and being the fact that he has white blood. He eventually goes on a quest to search for his father. This movie is very believable (nothing corny in it! ) and I loved it from start to finish. Perfection. It's a sleeper hit!
