Join us in the Forman House to watch the film Poetry.

This highly acclaimed Korean drama showcases a performance by Yun Jung-hee, who plays Mija, an aging part-time maid and full-time guardian of her apathetic grandson. Concerned by her frequent forgetfulness, she takes a poetry class at the local arts center to sharpen her mind. She begins to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, but a schoolgirl's suicide initiates a chain of tragic events that will change her life forever. Directed with skill and subtlety by Lee Chang-dong (Secret Sunshine), Poetry is a "nearly perfect movie" (Boston Globe) about the power of art to bear witness to both sublime beauty and the violent truths that lie hidden in the hearts of men. More info and the trailer here.
