Pop music sensations Chi Pu and Gil Le star in Vietnam’s first mainstream LGBTQ film, directed by Viet Max. When childhood friends Nhi and Tu reunite after 10 years apart, they must grapple with burgeoning feelings against a backdrop of familial, social and financial struggle. The actors truly bring the story alive: Pu and Le are naturals in their debut roles, and the supporting cast is as lovable as it is relatable.

Director Viet Max, who is known throughout Vietnam for his hip-hop moves, fashion design and music video direction, graduates to a new level of artistry in his feature film debut. LOVE is a testament to the power of music, friendship and family — and a universal reminder that love wins.
