A film by Chang-dong Lee
Starring Jeong-hie Yun, Nae-sang Ahn and Hira Kim
With elegance and a dash of eccentricity, Mija takes care of her ungrateful grandson and makes a living caring for an elderly man. On a whim, Mija enrolls in a poetry class and begins her quest to find the perfect words to describe her feelings. However, she’s plagued by the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, and struggles with new vocabulary and the challenges of the creative process. Perfectly paced and performed, POETRY is a masterful ode to the strength — and moral compass — of an indefatigable woman.
