The Third WifeFeatures
Inspired by Vietnamese director Ash Mayfair’s own family history, The Third Wife is a deeply personal and atmospheric period piece.
Fourteen-year-old May becomes the third concurrent wife of a local landowner through an arranged marriage. A tension between intimacy and confinement becomes a constant presence in the film as the pregnant May adapts to marriage and daily domestic life amid the shifting dynamics of the women’s relationships. Mayfair has crafted a rich tapestry of a film in which the historical is given contemporary relevance in this compelling examination of self-determination and community.
