Kim Bo-ra makes her feature film directorial debut with this critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama. Loosely inspired by Kim’s own adolescence, the film depicts a year in the life of Eun-hee, a 14-year-old in 1990s Seoul trying to survive high school and a dysfunctional and sometimes abusive family with the help of her best friend. Along the way, Eun-hee begins to grow close to her new cram school tutor, who may be the only person in the world who understands her. Thoughtful, intimate and confidently directed, this impressive character study tackles heavy issues, such as domestic abuse and sexism, with sensitivity.
