Movie Club – Representing – Mother (2009)

Representing is all our theme for September 2021. All the movies in this month feature non-white directors or stars. Corey and Jonathan looked through the films on their watch list to find movies that fit the category and found some compelling options.

As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they’ve seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all.

Week 4 – Mother (2009)

A mother desperately searches for the killer who framed her son for a girl’s horrific murder.

Directed by Bong Joon Ho

Starring:

  • Hye-ja Kim
  • Won Bin
  • Jin Goo
  • Je-mun Yun
  • Mi-seon Jeon
