An official selection of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival from award-winning writer/director Justin Chon, Blue Bayou is the moving and timely story of a uniquely American family fighting for their future. Antonio LeBlanc (Chon), a Korean adoptee raised in a small town in the Louisiana bayou, is married to the love of his life Kathy (Alicia Vikander) and step-dad to their beloved daughter Jessie. Struggling to make a better life for his family, he must confront the ghosts of his past when he discovers that he could be deported from the only country he has ever called home.
Blue Bayou is produced by Charles D. King, Kim Roth, Poppy Hanks and Justin Chon and co-stars Mark O’Brien, Linh Dan Pham and Emory Cohen. It world premieres at the 74th Cannes Film Festival this week and will be distributed by Focus Features September 17, 2021.
