South Pacific (2010)

South Pacific centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II, who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children. A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he marry his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenant's song, You've Got to Be Carefully Taught. PBS Live from Lincoln Center broadcast of the Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific.
