Dharma Entertainment Night: Poetry
Come for the dharma-themed movie and stay for discussion—free!
A woman in her 60s with early Alzheimer’s learns that her grandson was one of the attackers of a junior high school girl that committed suicide. Through all of this, and to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a poet, she takes a poetry class and starts writing.
Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, this is Lee Chang-dong’s masterful study of the subtle empowerment—and moral compass—of a woman that refuses to give up on life.
