THE WOMAN WHO RAN
HONG SANGSOO | SOUTH KOREA | 2020 | 77 MIN | NR | KOREAN
The 24th feature from Hong Sangsoo, THE WOMAN WHO RAN follows Gamhee (Kim Minhee), who has three separate encounters with friends while her husband is on a business trip. Youngsoon (Seo Youngwha) is divorced, has given up meat and likes to garden in her backyard. Suyoung (Song Seonmi) has a crush on her architect neighbor and is being hounded by a young poet she met at the bar. Woojin (Kim Saebyuk) works for a movie theater. Their meeting is polite, but strained. Before long, their shared history bubbles to the surface.
With characteristic humor and grace, Hong takes a simple premise and spins a web of interconnecting philosophies and coincidences. THE WOMAN WHO RAN is a subtle, powerful look at dramas small and large faced by women everywhere.
Cast: Kim Minhee, Seo Younghwa, Song Seonm, Kim Saebyuk, Lee Eunmi, with Kwon Haeyo, Shin Seokho and Ha Seongguk
