House of Hummingbird (벌새) - SIFF 2019 Capsule Review

The Movie: House of Hummingbird

The Director: Bora Kim

The Cast: Park Ji-hu, Kim Sae-byuk, Lee Seung-yeon, Jeong In-gi

The Story: Seoul, 1994 -- in the year the Seongsu Bridge collapsed, 14-year-old Eunhee wanders the city searching for love.

The Review:
Brilliant. Just. Freaking Brilliant. This coming of age story is exactly what we needed right now. It is real, it is raw, and it is authentic. Bora Kim's story of a young girl dealing with the ups and downs of adolescence is a real treat to watch unfold even as it runs you through just about every emotion possible. Also, Park Ji-hu is absolutely stunning in her debut feature performance.

House of Hummingbird is an official selection of the 2019 Seattle International Film Festival.
