BURNING

  • Cinema Detroit 4126 Third Street Detroit, MI 48201 (map)

2018 Oscar® Selection, South Korea

DIR Lee Chang-dong | South Korea | 2018 | 148 min


BURNING is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Ah-in YOO), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jong-seo JUN), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven Yeun, THE WALKING DEAD, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with. When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale. Official Selection, 2018 Cannes and Toronto film festivals.
