BRING ME HOME
KIM SEUNG-WOO | SOUTH KOREA | 2019 | 108 MIN | NR
March 10 | 7:00 PM | Philadelphia Film Center
After stunning audiences in Park Chan-wook’s Lady Vengeance, Lee Yeong-ae returns in her first film role in over a decade with Kim Seung-woo’s thrilling debut Bring Me Home. Lee brilliantly plays Jung-Yeon, a South Korean mother shaken to her core after suffering immense tragedy. The grieving Jung-Yeon and her husband remain determined to find their kidnapped son–who has been missing for over six years–despite dozens of missing children posters crowding their local police station’s walls. When word reaches Jung-Yeon that a boy in a small fishing village resembles her lost son, she begins to uncover a shocking world of corruption and lies. Kim has created a stark exploration of one woman’s fierce determination and an entire community’s neglect.
