Review | Birthday: mournful Korean drama set after Sewol ferry disaster
  • Lead actors play estranged parents mourning their son, killed in real-life sinking; the boy’s mother hasn’t accepted his death, and wants a divorce
  • Those looking for a film about the disaster and its aftermath will be disappointed; this is a masterclass in mournfulness, but focused on one family’s grief
