Directed by global art-house favorite Hong Sang-soo (NIGHT AND DAY; RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN), GRASS takes place almost entirely in a pleasant Seoul café. Kim Min-hee (THE HANDMAIDEN, HOTEL BY THE RIVER, ON THE BEACH AT NIGHT ALONE) stars as A-reum. She sits alone, typing on her laptop and eavesdropping on other customers. In typical Hong fashion, we soon become aware that nothing is as straightforward as it appears. Scenes are out of order, and we begin to wonder whether A-reum is simply recording the events around her or creating the very fiction we are watching. (Note courtesy of the Freer|Sackler.) DIR/SCR/PROD Hong Sang-soo. South Korea, 2018, b&w, 66 min. In Korean with English subtitles. NOT RATED
