Thailand's official submission for Best Foreign Language Film to the 2016 Academy Awards, How to Win at Checkers (Every Time), is a must-see. Superstar Thai actor-model Toni Rakkaen plays Oat, a young adult who recalls his childhood experience of trying to rescue his gay older brother Ek from being drafted into military service. As Ek grapples with the gritty realities of life in Bangkok - working at a bar for male hustlers and sex-workers - he also finds love with his more privileged boyfriend Jai. Who will be sent off to the service and who will get to stay home? Based on stories from the bestselling book "Sightseeing" by Rattawut Lapcharoensap, this unforgettably touching film is told with exquisite craftsmanship.
