United States | 2017 | Kogonada

Columbus, Indiana, is known for its concentration of modernist buildings by Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Robert Venturi, César Pelli, and others. This architectural mecca is the setting for this tender, low-key indie drama, the first feature by celebrated video essayist Kogonada and one of the most acclaimed movies of the year. (Cinematheque patrons loved it when we first showed it a little over a month ago.) The film follows two people—a disenchanted Korean-American man (John Cho) who has come to Columbus to attend to his comatose father, and a young woman (Haley Lu Richardson) who contemplates a career in architecture but is content living in Columbus with her mother, a recovering addict. The two meet, converse, befriend each other, and, while exploring the town’s timeless structures, ponder their lives and futures. Has echoes of Yasujiro Ozu’s 1949 Japanese masterpiece Late Spring. With Parker Posey and Rory Culkin. “A whisper-soft debut that results in something unique and unforgettable…Pure cinema.” –Rolling Stone. DCP. 104 min.
