    This film is story of a two people meeting in a small village called Columbus, Midwest of the United States. Casey is a librarian who struggles between her future plans and her recovering alcoholic mother. Casey meets Jin, a Korean-American and the son of a professor who did the architectural design of the library. Jin came to Columbus because his father got sick. The two lonely drifting people spend time around the buildings and streets of Columbus while healing their own deprivation. A film critic and an essayist Korean-American director Kogonada made his debut as a director with this film. Commune with strangers is a themes but Columbus uses ´architecture´ as a visual motif. Like modernism movie of Michelangelo Antonioni, architectural buildings reveal the characters more. Actor John Joe and Haley Lu Richardson are superb. [JANG Byungwon]
