A Girl at My Door
Both female leads get great reviews in this South Korean drama. 'Young-nam arrives from Seoul in a small fishing village to take up the position of Police Chief, having been pushed out and transferred away from her previous position in the capital. On her first day moving into the town, she comes across a young girl, Dohee, whom she soon discovers is being beaten by an alcoholic stepfather and grandmother. Feeling compelled to put herself between the girl and her family to protect the child, Young-nam puts everything on the line as her own troubles gradually come to the fore, building towards an explosive climax, equally affecting and effective' -Kenji Lloyd, London Film Festival review.
