Two Brothers. War. Mortality. Vulnerability.

Set in a peaceful sunny field, this film goes much deeper than its tranquil appearance. Greenfield, directed by emerging Jewish-Canadian director Aidan Lesser, follows the story of two young Asian-American brothers torn apart in this field by the Vietnam War. The older brother, John, has been recently drafted into the war effort. John, now, resolute that he will die overseas, the two are now arguing over John’s fate and the future of their family.

Few films explore vulnerability, brotherhood, and what it means to be emotional in front of other men; all the while using a harrowing historical period of great social and political change as a background quite like Greenfield— making this film a must-watch.
