A fairly typical 'bulling at school drama'.. But one that is well worth your time.
18 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Usually films that fit into the genre tend to sway towards 'what happened?' or 'why did this happen?', Thread of Lies takes the route of how it impacts those around her. While there is still the mystery on the side, it doesn't feel like the focal point. While still being a school drama (partly told through flashback), it is just as good as a character drama.

And characters is it's strongest element. From the 4 lead actresses down to the supporting cast, everyone was good. Standout's for me being Kim Hyang-Gi (Cheon-Ji), Chun Woo-Hee (Mi-Ran) & Kim Hie-Ae (Hyeon-Sook). Credit to the writers and director too, I felt the pacing was good, easy to follow but always finding out more and more towards character motivations.

And yes, being Korean it has a few quirky, lighthearted scenes. But it's never too crazy and fit's the characters personalities. And I'm fine with that, if not we would all be boarding the train to Depressionville. The score was decent too, it was kept soothing and it never went to overpowering levels.. even during emotional embraces and such. Which is a nice change of pace as there are many films which will try and burst your eardrums.

Overall a very solid film from top to bottom. You will not find many schoolroom dramas better, I would recommend to any drama fan out there.
