December’s Film in Discussion: Mother (2009)
If you’re familiar with South Korean Director Bong Joon-Ho’s work, you should know he is a master of suspense. Mother is a murder mystery that tells the story of an unnamed mother, played by Kim Hye-Ja, who decides to take matters into her own hands once her mentally challenged son, played by Won Bin, has been accused of murder. She scours the town, slowly unraveling pieces to the murder mystery in order to prove her son’s innocence and find the real killer that had framed her son.
Mother is easily accessible on Netflix instant stream so be sure to check it out!
My best advice is to jump into the film and not watch the trailer. The trailer may just give away too much!
