Synopsis

"At the time of writing, So Long My Son had a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, was Peter Bradshaw’s Film of the Week and will more than repay your investment of time at KFF.

An epic family saga, it spans the tail-end of the 20th century in China and charts the collective history of both the country’s one-child policy and the Cultural Revolution. Yoajun and Liyun’s only son is drowned after being goaded into swimming by their best friend’s son.

The two families’ subsequent and intertwining fortunes are brilliantly and movingly portrayed. The film finds, then repeatedly breaks, your heart, before a subtly momentous finale…Variety"
