Poetry

When her surly teenage grandson is implicated in a schoolgirl's suicide, life becomes even more confusing for Mija, who has Alzheimer's. Her decision to enrol in a poetry class brings relaxation and a new view of her world, in this original, beautiful and wonderfully acted South Korean film.
