Poetry

Buy At: Amazon.co.uk
Directed by: Lee Chang-dong

An elderly lady in her 60's Yang Mija (played by Yun Jeong-Hee) works as a carer for a disabled man and she also raises her grandson alone. She has to endure the onset of Alzheimer's disease and also learns that her grandson was one of the attackers of a junior high school girl that committed suicide.

Through all of this and to fulfil her lifelong dream of becoming a poet the elderly woman starts to take a poetry class and starts writing.

Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Lee Chang-dong's follow-up to his acclaimed Secret Sunshine is a masterful study of the subtle empowerment-and moral compass-of an older woman that refuses to give up on life.
