In Front of Your Face Dangsin-Eolgul-Apeseo

  Hong Sangsoo

  South Korea     85 minutes

Synopsis

A middle-aged former actress living in the United States returns home to South Korea to reconnect with old friends, visit family, and atone for past transgressions. While on her trip, she has encounters with all sorts: her younger sister; the current owner of her childhood home; and a film director dead set on casting her as the lead in his upcoming film. An undercurrent of mystery punctuates all of her interactions. What could she be hiding? Steeped in prolific director Hong Sangsoo’s (On the Beach at Night Alone, The Woman Who Ran) trademark cinematic style, In Front of Your Face ponders life’s most pressing questions, slowly revealing the unfathomable human depths of its characters.
