Foreign Friday: Sunny

Sunny is a South Korean film about a middle-aged woman who tries to fulfill her friend’s dying wish of reuniting their group of high school friends. The film alternates between two timelines: the present day where the women are middle-aged, and the 1980s when they were in high school.

This is an absolutely adorable film that very elegantly transitions between the present and flashbacks of the past. It beautifully captures the universality of the human experience. The closeness of a group of high school girl friends, the pain of first love, the way it feels like nothing’s changed when you’re back with that certain group of friends–even years later.

For anyone who wants to watch it, it’s available on Netflix Instant Watch.

Foreign Friday is an introduction to Indian and Korean culture in honor of my YA contemporary novel (tentatively titled) Shadows Fall Behind.
