Spring Showcase Screens Hit Family Film
HWANG Dong-hyuk’s smash family hit Miss Granny, the Lunar New Year release that has topped 8.6 million admissions to date, has been invited by San Diego’s Pacific Arts Movement for their 4th Annual Spring Showcase.
Miss Granny stars NA Moon-hee as a curmudgeonly elderly woman whose behavior begins to alienate her family. One day, as she prepares to be shipped off to an old folks’ home, she frequents a mysterious photo studio and, upon emerging from the store, she discovers that she has turned into her 20-year-old self, playing by SHIM Eun-kyoung.
Director HWANG previously made the films My Father (2007) and the 2011 surprise hit Silenced. NA is a veteran of the Korean film industry while SHIM is an emerging star who made her mark in the 2011 hit Sunny. Miss Granny just screened at the 6th Okinawa International Film Festival.
Pacific Arts Movement’s Annual Spring Showcase, which focuses on Asian and Asian-American works, will take place from April 17th to 24th. The showcase wlll also feature films such as KOREEDA Hirokazu’s Like Father Like Son and SONO Sion’s Why Don’t You Play in Hell.
