Film info

2016. Directed by Lee Dong-eun , starring Bae Jong-ok, Lee Won-gun, Ji Yun-ho, Cert 12A , 115 mins.

Lee Dong-eun’s exceptionally moving debut was developed and produced in the Myung Films Lab, an industry initiative to support new directors. Lee (an economics major) wrote it as a graphic novel before turning it into a film. A woman separated from her husband is bringing up her high-school-pupil son Soo-hyun alone. She thinks she knows and understands him, but she’s wrong: Soo-hyun is gay, and it’s only when he’s seriously injured in a car accident that she finds out who he really is. She takes out her confusion and anger on Soo-hyun’s close friend Yong-joon (Lee Won-gun, seen in Kim Ki-duk’s The Net), but the young man deals with the situation more calmly and with greater wisdom than she does. Brought to vivid emotional life by an excellent cast, the film confronts Korean homophobia and depicts a mother-son relationship with searing clarity.
