Poetry

Mija lives in a small city by the Han River with her teenage grandson. When she discovers her grandson’s part in the gang-rape and suicide of a Catholic school girl, Mija takes up poetry classes to explore her inner world while her outer world is collapsing on her. A Cannes prize winner, Lee Chang-dong’s Poetry is raw and unsentimental and features a masterclass performance by Jeong-Hie Yun at its centre.
