Next Sohee / 다음 소희 - 2023 SIFF Capsule Review

The Movie: Next Sohee다음 소희

The Director: Jung Ju-ri

The Cast: Bae Doona, Kim Si-eun

The Story: High school student Sohee starts job training at a call center, but she faces pressure of greedy company which leads to her death. Detective Oh Yu-jin, who has something in common with Sohee starts to follow traces to reveal the truth.

Capsule Review:
This is director Jung Ju-ri's first feature film since A Girl at My Door, her debut that was released back in 2014, and I really hope we don't have to wait nearly as long for her next film. The story hits hard emotionally and the performances from Bae Doona and Kim Si-eun are some of the best I have seen this year. This is an important movie on so many levels. Go see it as soon as you can.
