HOUSE OF HUMMINGBIRD is the story of Eunhee, an introverted eight-grader living with her temperamental parents and violent older brother. As the illusions of childhood slowly slip away one by one, Eunhee finds joy and safety in her friendships, a budding romance and a formal yet important relationship with her cram teacher. Checking all the traditional coming-of-age-boxes, Bora Kim’s remarkable debut feature turns clichés into cinematic poetry. This is a wise, touching and atmospheric drama for audiences of all ages.
