    The actor Nat Sakdatorn who plays Dr. Sam in Friendzone also has a recent movie, “Fathers”, about two guys who marry after a long relationship and then adopt a son. It’s very slice of life. I’ve watched half so far on Dailymotion and liked it. Nat is also a singer and did the very nice soundtrack.
