Casey lives with her mother, a recovering addict, in a little-known Midwestern town haunted by the promise of modernism. Jin, a visitor from the other side of the world, attends to his estranged, dying father. Burdened by the future, they find respite in one another and the architecture that surrounds them.

Filmed on location in Columbus, Indiana, this tender meditation on love, loss and architecture is the directorial feature debut for writer/director Kogonada. Featuring critically-acclaimed performances from John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson, Columbus is beautifully staged and astonishingly moving.

Striking and assured...subtly but profoundly affecting.
— Sight and Sound
Simple, sustained and thrillingly pure. ..Kogonada’s film makes you look at the hard edges of the world a little differently.
