The Woman Who Ran

Drama 77 min
Sunday, August 22

The 24th feature from Hong Sangsoo, The Woman Who Ran follows Gamhee (Kim Minhee), who has three separate encounters with friends while her husband is on a business trip. Youngsoon is divorced, has given up meat and likes to garden in her backyard. Suyoung has a crush on her architect neighbor and is being hounded by a young poet she met at the bar. Woojin works for a movie theater. Their meeting is polite, but strained. Before long, their shared history bubbles to the surface. With characteristic humor and grace, Hong takes a simple premise and spins a web of interconnecting philosophies and coincidences. The Woman Who Ran is a subtle, powerful look at dramas small and large faced by women everywhere.
