Casey lives with her mother, a recovering addict, in a little-known Midwestern town. Jin, a visitor from the other side of the world, attends to his estranged, dying father. Burdened by the future, they find respite in one another and the modernist buildings that surround them. Beautifully filmed on location in Columbus, Indiana, this tender meditation on love, loss and architecture is the directorial feature debut for South Korean writer / director Kogonada.
What the Critics say:
"Wonderfully acted and artfully composed, 'Columbus' balances the clean lines of architecture against the messiness of love, with tenderly moving results."  (Rotten Tomatoes website)
