Distinguished by superior directing and ensemble acting, Helen Lee’s SOPHIE is a somber, disquieting portrait of a Korean American family trapped in the miserable grasp of an abusive, alcoholic patriarch. As seen through the eyes of its hopeful, 11-year-old eponymous heroine, this timeless narrative crosses cultural boundaries to relate a frightening universal tale without ever losing sight of its Korean American roots.
