    In the Mood for Love

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    A gorgeous film that explores heartache, loss, dependency, individualism, companionship, and love. Told through the frame of two professionals who have been betrayed and find themselves yearning for each-other while shackled by dogma, unfortunate timing, work obligations, and a politically evolving Hong Kong, and mainland China.Β

    A melancholic look at the tribulations and triumphs of a Korean family immigrating to middle-America in the 80s as they embark on the elusive American dream.

    Perfectly casted and not overly-acted, Minari examines the sacrifices that need to be made when integrating into a new country without falling into the more obvious trappings that similar films constantly fall into it. Regardless of race, this film is about the disjointedness and imperfections that all families have, and the beautiful connections and…
