BOOMERANG FAMILY (2013, 113 min, American Premiere)

Filmmaker In-Mo is going through a crisis. His wife has left him for another man, his first movie is a total flop, and now he can’t pay his rent. While visiting his mother for dinner, he makes the decision to stay at her house indefinitely – a choice that does not sit well with his ex-con brother. Soon, In-Mo discovers that his sister is also planning on moving back home, and the usually calm family spirals into heated arguments. Who deserves to live there the most? Will the issues of her troubled children drive their secretive mother to madness? And most importantly, can they ever all live together as a happy family?

The film will be shown in Korean with English subtitles. 

The next free Korean Movie Night screening will be of MY NO-MERCY HOME (2013, 77 min, North American Premiere) on Tuesday, May 27th, 2014.
