About the Movie

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin's estranged relationship with his father, and Casey's reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada's COLUMBUS unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting turns from Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, COLUMBUS is also a showcase for its director's striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The movie leaves quite a bit to the eye of the beholder, but it's always worth looking at. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Aug 3, 2017

Fresh: Columbus is a charming and beautiful indie debut. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 4, 2017

Fresh: The feature directing debut of Kogonada, the South Korean video essayist and critic, is a poetic spellbinder about two strangers bonding over modern architecture. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 3, 2017

Fresh: What's remarkable about this wondrously assured debut is that technique never overwhelms feeling, in part because Kogonada makes the two seem inextricably, harmoniously linked. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Aug 10, 2017

An intelligent and enchanting movie

I saw this movie at the Sundance Film Festival and really enjoyed it. It's a contemplative exploration of the relationships between a Korean man and his estranged father, and a young woman and her drug-recovering mother. The movie was shot in Columbus, Indiana, a small town remarkable for its modernist architecture. The cinematography is stunning. John Cho is excellent as the leading man and Haley Lu Richardson gives an wonderfully nuanced performance. Parker Posey is terrific, as always. It's an intelligent, artistic film. No car chases, no violence and no superheroes. So, probably not for everyone, but I found it to be engaging and enjoyable.

An Intimate and Beautiful Film

I'm so relieved to see a film that requires you to slow down, turn off your phone and pay attention. "Columbus" is a great counterbalance to the numbing blockbusters this summer. It's a beautiful film artfully shot and constructed about real people connecting and struggling to overcome the hardships in their lives. The performances are subtle and powerful. This is a film that will stick with you long after it's over and it only gets better on the 2nd viewing.


John Cho! ❤️❤️❤️
