Poet and the Boy, TheBy Altered Innocence
A moving, and often deeply funny film, The Poet and the Boy tells the story of a struggling poet in his late 30s who has spent all his life in a small island town, living off his hard-working wife. Despite his wife's constant nagging about having a family - and his inability to carry his share in the relationship - all he does is think about his writing. One day, the poet meets a teenage boy working at a donut shop and helplessly develops feelings he has never had before, leading to both dramatic and comedic consequences. This debut feature from filmmaker Kim Yang-hee stars actor/director Yang Ik-June (Breathless), actress Jeon Hye-Jin (The Throne) and young Korean heart-throb and rising star Jung Ga-Ram.
