    It starts off as light farce, but becomes something more substantial with time, told in spare vignettes which add up to a real emotional payoff. Pity about the gay panic humour, but the two leads (Sang-Ah Lee and Baek Sung-hyun) are really good. Did make me crave coffee.

    Best part was the dude who came into a packed theatre five minutes before the movie started and couldn't believe that there weren't eight seats in a row for him and his mates.

    Weirdly transphobic, weirdly misogynist, weirdly Cis Het White Lives Matter. Throwing a couple of stars at it for a supporting cast who do their damndest with poor material.
