When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother.

"As a movie about intimacy Columbus is a masterpiece."
- Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic
"Lovely and tender, marking Kogonada as an auteur to watch."
- Geoff Berkshire, Variety
"Columbus is a charming and beautiful indie debut."
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"Columbus is a feast for the eyes, but its more lasting impression is on the heart. "
- Kate Erbland, Indiewire
"Almost startling in how assured it is, synthesizing beautiful, controlled images with story and character."
- Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"A gentle but sharply defined story, brimming with grace, compassion and performances of perfect naturalism, it is unashamedly intellectual yet deeply human."
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
"The director's greatest strength lies in creating a mood. "Columbus" is melancholy without being morose, and talky without forced cleverness."
- Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"As much as it is about architecture, the film is also a love letter to movies themselves: the sense of majesty they can capture and the strange little worlds they allow us to discover."
- Oliver Jones, New York Observer
"The feature directing debut of Kogonada, the South Korean video essayist and critic, is a poetic spellbinder about two strangers bonding over modern architecture."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The quietly stirring, exquisitely photographed Columbus is an art-house gem that beautifully illuminates not only the architecture of a small Indiana town, but also the characters that inhabit it."
- David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
