A Wonderful Little Gem!
16 April 2019 | by socratesadamoSee all my reviews

I'm very glad I saw this movie. It gives a very lifelike and unique glimpse into the lives of a regular brother and sister who are dealing with a difficult situation. This is exactly the kind of movie that I like. It feels so real and so relatable while also letting us see some people from a culture that may be slightly different than our own.

It really shows just how similar we are all while at the same time being unique. This film has the power to bring people closer together. Koreatown is not that far away from the homes of a lot of the people who will view this beautiful film. And yet this gives us a chance to see it from a new point of view, to see how different it is and how similar it is at the same time. How similar all the people are. The acting is wonderful, as are the directing and the story. Highly recommend.
