POP UP CINEMA BRIGHTON
White Wall Cinema presents
MONDAY NOVEMBER 20TH
DIRECTOR: Hirokazu Kore-eda
STARRING: Song Kang-ho, Gang Dong-won, Bae Doona, Lee Ji-eun & Lee Joo-young
This poignant, South Korean drama from Palme d’Or winning Shoplifters
director Hirokazu Kore-eda brings joy to the potentially dark subject of ‘baby boxes’, a place where unwanted babies can be anonymously abandoned safely. Parasite star Song Kang-ho teams with Gang Dong-won as a pair of ‘brokers’ who illegally attempt to sell these abandoned babies on the adoption black market. When young Mother Moon So-young (Lee Ji-eun) reconsiders her decision, the trio set out on a road trip to look for new adoptive parents for her child, whilst slowly becoming an unconventional misfit family in their own right, all the while being trailed by police detective Soo-jin (Bae Doona - The Host). Warm and uplifting but never sentimental
thanks to Kore-eda’s precise, naturalistic, tenderly melancholic storytelling style.
