Haley Lu Richardson and John Cho in “Columbus” (Photo submitted)
Drama features architecture of Columbus, Ind.
Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the drama “Columbus” Friday through Thursday.
The film was directed by Kogonada. When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. The movie also stars Parker Posey and Rory Culkin.
“Columbus” was awarded “Best Feature Film” at the Valletta Film Festival, as well as the prize for Narrative Feature at the Independent Film Festival of Boston. The movie has a 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The Salt Lake Tribune writes that the film is “a tender, beautiful gem that should not be overlooked.” The Arizona Republic writes that “Architecture has never been more romantic than in “Columbus,” single-name director Kogonada’s stunningly beautiful film.
