Columbus Rated 12A


Dir. Kogonada. USA, 2017. 1h 44m. Starring John Cho, Haley Lu Richardson, Parker Posey, Michelle Forbes, Rory Culkin, Erin Allegretti.

The son of a renowned architecture scholar finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana, after flying from Korea to care for his ill father. Kogonada’s critically acclaimed debut is an exquisitely shot arthouse gem about family responsibility as well as a love letter to the city’s striking urban landscape.

‘From all the formal elegance there emerges something subtly but profoundly affecting about family and friendship.’ Ben Nicholson, Sight and Sound Magazine

‘In its precision - the framing of each shot is as eloquent as the dialogue - and measured pacing, Columbus is a balm, a deep tissue massage for the soul.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer
