Film Review: The Way Home

The Way Home

This Month's Film: The Way Home

It soon becomes clear that Sang Woo has gotten on her last nerve, and although she is parking him at Grandma's house for a couple of months under the auspices of looking for a job, she mostly just needs a break from his constant harangue. One look at the bent and weathered but beatific grandmother, and it's obvious where the story is going. Sang Woo has some hard lessons to learn.
