Kim Min-hee, the star of Right Now, Wrong Then and The Handmaiden, wasn’t always seen as a serious actress, but that changed following her revelatory turn in Byun Young-joo’s Helpless. Kim plays a fiancé who suddenly disappears on the way to meet her boyfriend’s parents. Thinking she has been kidnapped, he tirelessly searches for her, but eventually begins to uncover her surprising secrets. Though filled with mystery and filmed with panache, the power of Helpless is its devotion to character, which turns the conundrum of the missing woman’s circumstances into an emotional and fascinating journey.
