In this episode, I talk about Lee Chang-dong’s devastating 2010 film “Poetry”. It tells the story of 66-year-old Mija, who is struggling with her health and with the revelation that her grandson, Wook, is connected to the death of a young girl named Agnes. As all this is happening, Mija is also taking a poetry class and desperately wants to write a poem.
