Director Chang-dong Lee's follow-up to Secret Sunshine concerns an elderly woman who, in the wake of a severe medical diagnosis, finds purpose and solace through poetry. 


"About guilt and responsibility, about loss, about the terrible things human beings do, and the moments of serenity and spiritual succor to be gleaned from the natural world." - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Poetry is daring in the ways only quiet, unhurried but finally haunting films have the courage to be." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
