The 24th feature from Hong Sangsoo, THE WOMAN WHO RAN follows Gamhee (Kim Minhee), who has three separate encounters with friends while her husband is on a business trip. Youngsoon (Seo Youngwha) is divorced, has given up meat and likes to garden in her backyard. Suyoung (Song Seonmi) has a crush on her architect neighbor and is being hounded by a young poet she met at the bar. Woojin (Kim Saebyuk) works for a movie theater. Their meeting is polite, but strained. Before long, their shared history bubbles to the surface. With characteristic humor and grace, Hong takes a simple premise and spins a web of interconnecting philosophies and coincidences. THE WOMAN WHO RAN is a subtle, powerful drama.

“The Woman Who Ran showcases humanity at its most amusing, awkward, and authentic.” — Lee Jutton, Film Inquiry
“The results aren’t only intriguing and sometimes hilarious but clearly also a sincere meditation on what you might be saying when you think you aren’t saying much at all.” — Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
“The Woman Who Ran is charming from beginning to end, evoking the delicious, tickling breeze found in the everyday tales of Eric Rohmer.” — Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies
