Mother

Friday, March 12 - Thursday, May 20, 2010

Bong’s follow up to the international sensation The Host starts as a comedic portrait of an insanely doting mother, but takes a sharp turn when the woman’s simpleminded son is railroaded into prison for the murder of a schoolgirl. Convinced that he’s been falsely convicted, she throws herself body and soul into proving his innocence.

“By miles the best thriller I’ve seen this year… Riveting and darkly funny, Bong Joon-Ho is a brilliant filmmaker.” – John Powers, Vogue
