Korean Cultural Service's Korean Movie Night film series continues in New York City this coming Tuesday evening with another free screening.

A massive word-of-mouth hit in Korea, GOODBYE MOM is a brawling, bawling, no-holds-barred depiction of the most complicated relationship in the world: mother and daughter. Ae-Ja (Choi Kang-Hee) was a high school golden child, an ace writer who had everyone convinced she was going to be the Korean Tolstoy.

Jump forward 10 years, and she’s a 29-year-old with a mountain of debt, no career and only a single writing prize from a local paper to her name. Hounding her to get married and grow up is her mom (Kim Young-Ae), with whom she has the kind of relationship a boxer has with his opponent: they’re going to keep duking it out in the ring until one of them goes down.

Meticulously observed, made without any flash, this is a showcase for these two actresses to strut their stuff, and Kim Young-Ae, coming out of a three-year retirement, owns the screen as a mom who’s going out, but who’s determined not to go quietly. You don’t want to miss the movie that everyone’s been talking about in Korea.
